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.
