    Looks great! I'd like the year level on the cover to be editable though This would mean that I could support readers in higher year levels by giving them simpler texts to read without them being embarrassed because it says a lower level on the cover.

      Hey Nicole, thank you for taking the time to share your feedback. This is a fantastic idea and an important one we are currently including moving forward with our magazine. Watch this space and if you need assistance with anything else, please do not hesitate to contact us.

    Can the digital copy be saved and opened in iBooks etc for easy sharing with kids or will I need to login in and airdrop etc. Just not sure how to distribute to kids. Great job - I’ve used both year 4 & 5 as printed docs but would love to utilise on iPads. Thanks Nikki

      Hi Nikki, Yes, you can download the PDF and this will be accessible for the kids in their devices. If they open it in iBooks, they will also be able to annotate the text and complete the Word Search and puzzles using the iBook markup tools. If there is anything else I can assist you with, please don't hesitate to contact me.
