Return to Nim's Island - and a Give-Away!

I'm happy to share with you a movie your entire family can watch and enjoy together on this Friday, March 15th on the Hallmark Channel at 8/7C. "Return to Nim’s Island, the sequel to Walden Media’s 2008 box office hit Nim’s Island, picks up the story a few years later with 14-year-old Nim (Bindi Irwin) more determined than ever to protect her island and the animals which call it home. With ruthless resort developers and greedy wildlife poachers threatening the existence she loves, Nim realizes she and her animal pals can’t defend their home alone. To save her island, she is forced to combine forces with an outsider: Edmund, a runaway from the mainland. Only with his help does she stand a chance of stopping the villains from dismantling her world."
