I have the Kindle app on two ipads and one iPhone, and just added a Kindle Fire to the mix for my six year old. Some of the books that have been purchased for adults on the iPads are inappropriate for a child, so I'd prefer they aren't visible to her. But removing them appears to delete them completely from the account. Is there a way to make them not appear on the Fire, but still accessible from the main account. Similarly, I'd prefer not to wade through books like the American Girl Doll.

All the books on the account will show in the archives for all Kindles on that account.

The books are all archived, but they show up in the default flow list no matter what, which is the first thing you see. On the iPad, anything in the archive is not visible unless you select archived titles, then redownload.

Of course I can tell her not to look at something, and there's nothing horrendous on there in any case, but as a parent, I'd prefer to not have the books and movies available at first glance.

Fud53, you obviously don't have children or they're robots.

did you even take a look at the date of the zombie thread you dredged up?
