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

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.

Unlike tablets, no blue light to disturb your child’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.

Lighten already heavy backpacks

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

Leave the cord at home

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