It's not screen time - it's book time

More reading, no distractions

Unlike tablets, Kindle is designed just for reading, which means kids can lose themselves in a good book rather than get distracted by videos or games.

Latest generation Kindle

The latest Kindle without sponsored screensavers has a touchscreen display and reads like paper—no annoying glare, even in bright sunlight. Learn more

Lighten already heavy backpacks

Kindle holds thousands of books, so kids will never have to leave their favorite titles behind.

Tackle more challenging books

Features like Word Wise and Vocabulary Builder support real-time vocabulary development, increasing their confidence and motivation to read. Plus, by easily increasing the font size, kids can read larger, more difficult books.

Leave the cord at home

A single battery charge lasts weeks, not hours, so there’s one less thing for kids to have to remember.

Set goals and celebrate with achievement badges

Designed with kids in mind

Kids can read books in a simple, fun, and safe environment designed specifically for them with Kindle FreeTime. Younger kids can search before they know how to type by using Characters—for example, tap on images for “Princesses,” “Dinosaurs,” or “Cars.”

Track achievements

With Kindle FreeTime, children can view their reading progress for each book, track reading accomplishments for each day, and earn achievement badges for reaching milestones.

Best-in-class parental controls

Parents can have peace of mind that kids won’t access inappropriate content or websites, or accidentally make purchases as Kindle FreeTime blocks access to browsing and purchasing in the Kindle Store, access to the Internet, access to Wikipedia, and disables social sharing.

Choose age-approved content

Parents can choose specific books for children in Kindle FreeTime from their existing Kindle library or by purchasing new e-books from the Kindle Store. Selections can be updated at any time and books shared in Kindle FreeTime will be available in the child’s profile on Kindle.

Take their reading to the next level

Vocabulary Builder

When kids look up words on Kindle, they are automatically added to the Vocabulary Builder on their device. With Vocabulary Builder, they can use flashcards to learn the definitions and usage of words.

Built-In Dictionary

Kindle comes with a built-in New Oxford American Dictionary so kids can easily access definitions without leaving the page.

Word Wise

With Word Wise, available on many English language titles, short and simple definitions automatically appear above difficult words so kids can keep reading with fewer interruptions. Tap on a word to bring up a simple card with definitions, synonyms, and more. The number of hints can be adjusted with a simple slider.

Sometimes "Oops" happens

Drop it? Spill on it? No worries.

We all know accidents happen. Your Kindle is covered from day one by a 2-year extended warranty provided and sold by SquareTrade for damage caused by common accidents, including knocking it off a table, dropping it in water, or your dog chewing on it. It also covers your Kindle against electrical and mechanical breakdowns. Learn more

Kid-friendly cover

The light, ergonomic cover won’t add unnecessary weight, and has a textured back which helps smaller hands prevent accidental drops. Precision-molded to fit their Kindle to guard against scratches and mild impact while still allowing access to the touchscreen as well as all ports and buttons. Let them express themselves with one of several colorful choices.

The official sponsor of the Scripps National Spelling Bee

Great readers make great spellers

Kindle is the proud presenting sponsor of the Scripps National Spelling Bee. Started in 1925, more than 11 million students now participate in the Scripps National Spelling Bee each year. Educational research shows spelling and reading have a tightly woven relationship. As children become more fluent readers using Kindle features like Word Wise, it becomes easier for them to learn more complicated words. Kindle offers technology that will be used by the Scripps National Spelling Bee in building its word lists for school-level study materials, reinforcing the message that early reading leads to great spelling and vocabulary.

The official e-reader of the National PTA

In support of this mission, the PTA Family Reading Experience, Powered by Kindle is an easily replicable event that local PTAs can implement within their schools to engage families in fun activities and provide them with tools and strategies to help their children become better readers.

Format: Product Bundle
Amazon has bundled together a Kindle, cover, and protection plan with the child in mind. If you are thinking about buying this for a child you might want to take the following into consideration. It could turn into a great gift or a dust collector, depending on what the child wants.

* First of all, this is the same 7th generation Kindle being advertised for $79. I own it and love it.
* This is a dedicated e-reader. This simply means that this Kindle is used for reading books. You cannot watch videos or play games. It is not a tablet computer. It is designed to read on.
* This is not a color e-reader. Any book you buy will be in black and white, well, greyscale really. But again, it's designed to read books. Any novel you open will be in black and white.
* There is no built in light. Like a regular book you will need to read with a light source. Outside, lamp, natural daylight in a room are all perfectly ok.
* No text to speech on this model. The reader cannot plug in headphones and hear the text read.

Those are the biggies I can think of that might be of interest to a child. Basically, if the receiver of this Kindle wants to read books and read books only, this is a slam dunk! But if they want to read books, watch videos on youtube, play games, and go online, you'd be better off with a Kindle Fire. I am a fifth grade teacher and I can tell you that I see a variety of Kindles. When students use the Fire I really have to discourage the playing of games in class. This can sometimes be problematic. But when students are using a dedicated e-reader like this I know they are using it to read.

Although Amazon describes this as a 'kids bundle' (and there are some pros and cons regarding purchasing this for a kid - see below), it's an excellent value for anyone considering purchase of a new Kindle. This review will therefore cover the merits of this bundle, not just from the standpoint of kids use, but for all possible users as well.

It starts with the basic Kindle e-reader which is still a very good choice for many readers:

- for those who simply want an e-reader, don't want or need a combination device that is also intended for installing apps and web browsing and playing games, and are not demanding a color screen (for those purposes a tablet device is really needed, one alternative of course being the least expensive Fire model, the Fire HD 6 which is also available as the Fire HD 6 Kids Edition, or the Fire HD Kids Edition Bundle, both Kids models being more expensive than this e-reader bundle but perhaps more suitable depending upon what features are desired). As Amazon says: this device is "Purpose-built for reading. Kindle is designed as a dedicated e-reader. Indulge your love of reading without interruptions like email alerts and push notifications".

Quite simply, buying this affordable Kindle for your kid (or kids) is a way to promote reading. It's not a gaming platform. It's not a video player. It's not a iPod. It's not a portal into the worlds of the internet. It's not even a photography or videography tool. And that's what is so wonderful about this incredibly affordable Kindle package. It's for reading. Honestly, my review could stop there -- but I have a few more things to say.

Kindle's have been around for several years now, and the technology is sound and tested. Reading on this device is not only similar to reading on paper, it also references the feel and aesthetics of reading an old fashioned book with pages that turn. So why get a Kindle when books are so much like it? For me, there are three simple answers: 1) you can store hundreds of books on this device, 2) it can actually be easier (physically) to read on a Kindle, and 3) reading can be a little bit more fun on a Kindle, and any little bit of incentive (when it comes to reading and kids) is worth it.

There are a couple of additional reasons why I think this is a great deal. The first is that this is the ad-free version of the Kindle. By paying $99, this means that portions of your screen are not given over to ads. As far as I'm concerned, there is no reason to pay to look at ads, and kits really don't need to be enthralled by more ads, so this version of the device is the way to go. The other thing that's worth noting is that the accessories that come with this Kindle are really nice. The case offers both a better grip and increased protection ... and you're gonna need it, because our kids drop and kick their devices all the time! A 2-year warranty also comes with it, though I've never needed to exercise a warranty on a Kindle.
