About Weston Woods Studios
Founded as an educational production studio in 1953 by Morton Shindel, Weston Woods Studios, a division of Scholastic, has since produced hundreds of films, CDs, and audio cassettes based on best loved children’s books by some of this country’s most well-known and influential authors and illustrators, such as Maurice Sendak, Lois Lowry, Robert McCloskey, Kevin Henkes and Mo Willems. Their materials are used in more than 50,000 schools and libraries nationwide and are distributed in more than 20 countries. The visionary Shindel demonstrated that faithful picture book adaptations can succeed in whetting children’s appetites for turning and returning to the books on which they are based, helping children develop a lifelong love of reading and literature.
