With all the distractions in the world today, it’s really hard to get children to read and consume a lengthy book. To help out, a dedicated e-reader is a great way to offer a selection of books in the palm of their hand. The new Kindle Paperwhite Kids turns the popular e-reader into a kid-friendly device, with a good library of Kindle books to boot.
Why do my kids need this?
You may know this scene too well. Mom and dad with their e-reader, reading on the beach and the kids with their iPad playing video games.
Your kids might just as well want to devour an exciting book, yet you feel hesitant to buy them a dedicated e-reader, or chug along heavy books.
The Kindle Paperwhite Kids is a special edition of the refined Kindle e-reader that contains a special kids cover, is waterproof and offers a year’s subscription on Amazon Kids+, with a selection of the most popular kids books. For peace of mind, the Paperwhite Kids has the same, 2-year worry-free guarantee that allows you to replace it should something bad happen to it.
Furthermore, there are special features like Vocabulary Builder and Word Wise to help young readers build their reading skills. A special font OpenDyslexic reportedly helps some readers with dyslexia to read better as well.
Parental controls allow you to set a bedtime, so that your kid won’t continue to read that exciting book into the night.
In all other ways, this Kindle is like the regular Paperwhite, sporting a sharp 300ppi display with an adjustable, built-in light and a 10-week battery life so you can easily take it on holiday without needing a recharge.
Grab some Bluetooth headphones and your kid can also listen to Audible. The Kids+ subscription also offers a wide range of audiobooks, so this may be a good alternative to reading in the car or in the bedroom.
