More reading, no distractions

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

Tackle more challenging books

For kids reading their first chapter books, Word Wise, available on many popular English language titles, makes it easier to enjoy and quickly understand more challenging books. Short and simple definitions automatically appear above difficult words, so they can keep reading with fewer interruptions. Tap on a word to bring up a simple card with definitions, synonyms, and more.

Lighten already heavy backpacks

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

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

Unlike tablets, no blue light to disturb your family's sleep

Recent studies have shown that evening exposure to blue light from backlit screens like tablets and smartphones can suppress the body’s production of melatonin, a naturally occurring hormone that helps the body fall asleep. Because the Kindle display emits no light, your family can read before bedtime without losing sleep.

Leave the cord at home

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

Kid tested, parent approved

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.”

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.

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.

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 reading to the next level

Vocabulary Builder

When kids look up words on Kindle, the words are automatically added to the Vocabulary Builder on the device. With Vocabulary Builder, kids 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 readers can easily access definitions without leaving the page.

Highlight

Readers can easily highlight their favorite quotes and sentences to remember for later.

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

Drops? Spills? No worries

Your Kindle is covered from day one by a 2-year worry-free guarantee for damage caused by common accidents, including knocking it off a table, dropping it in water, or your dog chewing on it.

1.0 out of 5 stars Poor Customer Experience on Warranty Claim
By JenB on November 20, 2017
We received this kindle as gift for my daughter. The kindle was great and it was wonderful tool to encourage reading. About a year and half after we purchased the device it broke. The screen is frozen and the device does not respond. No worries, right? It comes with a warranty. We called Amazon at 1-877-453-4515 to file a claim. The experience was one of the WORST I have gone through. They tried everyway not to complete the claim. I waited on hold for over 55 minutes. I was told that I only had 1 year warranty. It very clearly says in the order form that it comes with a "Worry Free" 2-year warranty. The agent could not explain the warranty process and was very difficult to communicate with. I asked for supervisor and had very poor connection I could only understand every other word. I was told that a email will be coming my way and something will happen in 2-3 days but I have no confidence that it will.

Update -12/1/2017. I received a note from customer service on 11/21 from Nick C indicating that they would call me back once the replacement was processed. It is now December 1st and there has been no communication or update. I've been on the phone with Amazon Kindle service for over an hour. I was still told that the item is out of warranty even though it was purchased in 2016 and the warranty is 2-years. I've invested over 3 hours at this point in terms of trying to file this claim. I'm still on hold but told that they will process a replacement.
