Why You Should Try Kindle Free Time for Kids!

kindle3 We live in a reading household!  I love to read so much that really my kids have no options in being surrounded by great books!  I am also a huge fan of Amazon!  I am a loyal customer and nothing brightens my day like receiving a box with the happy face on it!

The month of March is National Reading Month and it is a wonderful time to get your children more involved in reading!  Kindle FreeTime is a great way to do this and you won’t believe what you get for only 2.99 a month.

Why You Should Try Kindle FreeTime:

Kindle FreeTime lets you create personalized profiles for kids, and gives them access to titles from your collection of books. They are also rewarded with achievement badges when they reach their goals. A progress report keeps parents updated on total time spent reading, number of words looked up, badges earned, and books read.  I love it because it is another great way to encourage children in the love of reading,

FreeTime Unlimited offers unlimited access to hundreds of hand-picked chapter books and early readers, all curated for age-appropriateness, so parents don’t have to spend time and money guessing what their kids will enjoy.

FreeTime Unlimited includes favorites, such as the Harry Potter series, The Borrowers by Mary Norton, Big Nate and Friends by Lincoln Peirce, and Newberry Medal and Honor winning books such as The Sign of the Beaver by Elizabeth George Speare, and Island of the Blue Dolphins by Scott O’Dell.  All of these books and more for 2.99 a month!

If you pair the Kindle e-reader ($79) with FreeTime it makes the perfect gift for kids starting to read chapter books, and is designed to make great books as accessible and engaging as possible, with zero distractions.

With Kindle, children can:

  • Look up definitions as they read to build their vocabulary and increase the font size for easier reading.
  • Use features like Vocabulary Builder – which stores words that kids look up and allows them to quiz themselves with flash cards – or Word Wise, which provides short and simple definitions above difficult words as they’re reading along.
  • Read thousands of books for free, including classics like Treasure Island and eBooks from their local library
  • Easily take their books with them without loading up a heavy backpack, helping to increase the amount of books they read – when one book finishes, they can start the next one right away!

This Kindle is perfect for the kids in your home.  It is lightweight and super easy to use!  With just a touch you can change pages easily, look up things, and keep track of your kids reading time!  There is no nasty glare and easy for them to carry in a bag or backpack!

kindle1 If you already have a Fire Tablet or Amazon Fire TV you get even more for the same price.   We have the tablet and I could not believe the value of this once we set it up-it was amazing to see how much we really get!  We now have access to over 5,000 kid-friendly books, games, educational apps, movies, and TV shows. My daughter is LOVING every minute of it.   She has read so many books and found tons of videos to watch.   I love how Amazon has the family sharing now so you can now share books across the kindles in your home (so I can share with my kids or husband if I would like) and for a family that loves to read this is just an added bonus to everything else!

My daughter has enjoyed the fact that it is keeping track of her progress and giving achievement badges.  I have two kids that are very close in age 11 and 12 and this is the time they are really loving chapter books so this is just perfect for them.  Chapter books are great to read on the Kindle!

kindle2 Amazon FreeTime is available across Amazon devices, including Kindle e-readers, Fire tablets, and Amazon Fire TV.  Though the specific features available on a device will vary

    This is a really great idea. This would be perfect for my little niece. She has started to really enjoy reading.

    Unless the Kindle has changed substantially since last year, there are no parental controls on the Internet. We have friends who’s son accessed p*rn for over a year.

    I will say Kindle has made some changes for the internet access. There are SEVERAL ways to allow your children to use these devices now safely! This is very important to us a family and I’m impressed with all you can do to protect your kids now with their devices. The Kindle ereader is perfect and with the Kids Unlimited set up there is NO way for the kids to gain access to internet.
