The internal pages are the standard 7mm ruled line, and the books are supplied FREE on the understanding that children use the books for homework purposes, and that they are NOT covered unless clear dura-seal is used. The front cover has a picture of the New Zealand Coat of Arms with a description so children can learn about the various components of our Coat of Arms. Schools can also personalise their front covers with artwork of their choice.

Underneath each cartoon there is a space where local businesses place their details along with a support message for their local school and families. It is by way of these businesses supporting specific child safety awareness cartoons on the covers of the books that we can provide them FREE to schools throughout the country as we have done for the last 30 years.
