Orbit is filled with lively texts that will capture the imagination of readers with an interest level around 10-11 years old. Children adore the richly illustrated pages. The chooks which host the magazine are a particular favourite—they help to explain unfamiliar vocabulary or concepts; comment on the texts; and crack lots of jokes! Orbit is carefully crafted to contain a range of texts for skilled independent readers, as well as those who are less confident. The comic serials which appear each month are a highlight for Orbitoids!
