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.
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.
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.
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.
Kindle comes with a built-in New Oxford American Dictionary so readers can easily access definitions without leaving the page.
Readers can easily highlight their favorite quotes and sentences to remember for later.
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.

The book turned out to be First Comes Love by Katie Kacvinsky, a young adult novel. https://www.amazon.com/First-Comes-Love-Book-ebook/dp/B005LVR01U/ref=sr_1_4?s=digital-text&ie=UTF8&qid=1491918555&sr=1-4&keywords=love+comes+first
I don't know why that is on FreeTime when we have the settings set for ages 8-11. Hey, at least they mentioned condoms, but come on. That is definitely not a book for 8-11 year olds.
Other than that problem, the software is horribly buggy. I have called customer service twice and they have guided me through the steps only to find it doesn't work and we have to send the device back. They did replace it like they said, but the problems just keep happening. The parental controls seem to reset themselves from time to time, so the time limits I create suddenly disappear. Or the device gets stuck on the Power off screen but won't actually power off or on. I try to add apps I bought but they don't appear. It's overcomplicated and asks for your password constantly. And it's not me, I follow the directions exactly and even the customer service people have not been able to get it to work.
But now that the kid-filtering software has gone so wrong, the last good reason to buy this tablet no longer applies.
I will also say that, if I had KNOWN that FreeTime was basically getting my kids addicted to downloading from hundreds of games at will, so that they always think they need a brand new game, I would not have bought it. I was hoping for them to have some educational apps. But there is no way in the parental controls to specify which apps they may play. My kids don't play the educational apps when they have so many other flashy choices.
I was also disappointed that I could not put Audible on the kids' Kindles. The text-to-speech software is awful to listen to, and I had already bought books on Audible I had planned to put on her Kindle. They worked on mine, I saw nothing before purchase about how the Audible app and audiobooks are specifically excluded from FreeTime for no apparent reason. Same thing with music files. I had hoped to fill my daughter's kindle with music from our own collection but you can't do that in FreeTime, and again, there was nothing to let me know about this before I bought it. So she listens to some app called I Heart Family Radio which seems to be all Alvin and the Chipmunks. My kid had good taste in music. Why are you doing this to us, Amazon! Stop the chipmunks! Seriously, though, if you are going to specifically exclude whole functions of the device, you need to let people know before they buy it.
But this latest screw-up is the worst. Since FreeTime allows kids to download freely and you have thousands of books available, I now have no way of knowing what inappropriate title she may get her hands on next. I have lost faith in your kid-filtering software which was the whole point of the purchase.
