Can't add Book Samples to Content in Kindle Freetime

I just got a Kindle Fire for my 8-year old and set it up using Kindle FreeTime to restrict content. I bought a few books for her and also downloaded samples of books I think she might like. I can add the purchased books to her Kindle Freetime account under "Manage Your Content" but the sample books do not appear there so I cannot let her read the samples. Is there a way to add the samples to her account?

Thanks, Susan

Susan - No, samples are never stored on your account. They are device specific only.

Checking in on this question. Even when I, as a parent, deliver a sample directly to my child's account via the amazon family settings, it never shows up in my childs kindle. How can children using FreeTime see a sample of a book?

Looks like you can't add sample content to a child's account. This is just dumb. If that is an Amazon decision or a publisher restriction (assume it is), it just does not make sense for either one of them to restrict this. The reason why you would allow sample content for an adult is the same as a child - publishers will sell more books. Dumb, dumb, dumb.
