About the Film:
Disneynature’s all-new feature film PENGUINS is a coming-of-age story about an Adélie penguin named Steve who joins millions of fellow males in the icy Antarctic spring on a quest to build a suitable nest, find a life partner and start a family. None of it comes easily for him, especially considering he’s targeted by everything from killer whales to leopard seals, who unapologetically threaten his happily ever after. From the filmmaking team behind BEARS and CHIMPANZEE, Disneynature’s PENGUINS opens in theaters nationwide in time for Earth Day 2019.

Bestselling WonderTM Book Brand Launch Nationwide
New York, NY (January 22, 2018) — On the heels of the feel-good hit movie, Wonder, starring Julia Roberts, Owen Wilson and Jacob Tremblay, and the longstanding #1 New York Times bestselling book of the same name by R.J. Palacio, Random House Children’s Books will continue the movement to inspire families, educators and young readers nationwide to #ChooseKind in 2018. With over 9 million copies in print for the Wonder publishing program, and the extraordinary success of this fall’s film release, Palacio’s story continues to inspire millions across the country to show kindness, every day.
A heartfelt new array of products under the Wonder publishing brand are available now, and celebrate the positive themes of kindness, compassion, and inner beauty, featuring Palacio’s iconic Wonder illustrations. Perfect for mindful kids, families and teachers who keep these sensibilities close to the heart, Wonder products make it cool to #ChooseKind. A star player in the consumer products line is the 365 day Journal Set sprinkled with quotes from the beloved bestseller. It offers a prompt each day that encourages children and their parents to practice kindness in the home, classroom and out in the world, a special memento when filled out! A daily affirmation calendar, and Wonder stationery is available at Barnes n’ Noble, Target, Amazon and more.

The “Daily Wonder” app is also available on iOS, and provides a precept for each day of the year celebrating goodness and strength. Based on the second book of the Wonder series 365 Days of Wonder, also by R.J. Palacio, the app has something to inspire everyone. Messages are drawn from popular songs, inscriptions from Egyptian tombstones, fortune cookies, and words of wisdom from such noteworthy people as Anne Frank, Martin Luther King Jr., Mother Teresa, Mahatma Ghandi, and everyday kids. Fans can submit their own words of wisdom for potential inclusion into the app at http://choosekind.tumblr.com/contact.
Thousands of teachers nationwide have already chosen to certify their classrooms “Kind” using the FREE “Wonder Anti-Bullying Themed Resource Guides.” All others interested in furthering the inclusive, anti-bullying discussion can take the #ChooseKind Pledge Online.
Wonder was created by Palacio after an incident in her own life. She and her two sons, were waiting in line to buy ice cream. Her youngest son, only three years old, noticed a girl with facial abnormalities and started to cry. Fearing his reaction would hurt the girl’s feelings, she left the scene abruptly.
“I realized afterward that I had handled the situation terribly,” stated Palacio. “What I wished I had done was to turn the encounter into a teaching moment, showing my kids there was nothing to be afraid of. “It made me wonder what it must be like for that child, facing a world every day that doesn’t know how to face you back.”
Palacio started work on Wonder immediately after the incident. The inspirational story of 10-year old Auggie Pullman, takes readers through a journey faced with many difficulties as he attends private school for the first time after years of being homeschooled.

Learn About the Brand
The Roman Goddess of healing, Valentia, relied on nature’s gifts to heal the citizens of Umbria. Whether matriarchs seeking to maintain their youthful look or farmers seeking help for sun damaged skin, Valentia used berries, herbs, barks and other natural ingredients. We also rely on all natural ingredients due to their protective, preventative and corrective powers.
Just like our namesake, Valentia Skin Care products have been formulated with natural and organic cosmetic ingredients that will repair and protect the skin.
After performing extensive research into what skin care customers find most important, we found an overwhelming demand for skin care that is natural, free of toxins and paraben-free. Natural ingredients with an organic base have proven most effective at repairing skin damaged by sun or wind, preventing signs of aging such as wrinkles, dark spots, and reversing the effects of oxidative stress on the skin.
