When Pinney suggests making kites on a windy day, Ginnie is a bit worried about being blown about. Everyone else thinks it is a great idea. Whilst Pinney's enthusiasm convinces Ginnie to make a kite and not be left out, it is also the cause of many kite-making problems for Pinney. After many failures, Pinney finally makes a kite that flies. Or does he?

The Ginnie & Pinney multiplatform program is aimed for children, 3-8, to stimulate and enhance emotional intelligence, empathy and ethical decision-making. It includes an eight book set, eight animatic videos and a teacher resource.

Open-ended questions at the back of each book, created in consultation with Australian academics, aim to encourage lively discussion and ethical decision-making.

Each book is a 36 page full colour paperback.

The program is based on the Australian National Framework for Values Education and the Early Years Learning Framework for Australia.
