It’s reading time, not screen time
Kindle Paperwhite Kids is designed just for reading, which means no distractions from apps, videos, or games.
The bundle includes 1 year of Amazon Kids+ (auto-renews after 1 year), a kid-friendly cover, and a 2-year worry-free guarantee—up to a $269 value.
A library full of kid-friendly content
Every Kindle Paperwhite Kids comes with 1 year of Amazon Kids+, an auto-renewing subscription with access to thousands of books. From timeless classics like Bridge to Terabithia, to popular series like Harry Potter and Keeper of the Lost Cities, Kindle Paperwhite Kids has the books that will inspire a love of reading. Learn how to add additional books to your child’s profile.
Waterproof and worry-free
Kindle Paperwhite Kids is waterproof (IPX8-rated) and has been lab-tested to protect against accidental immersion in up to two meters of fresh water for up to 60 minutes and 0.25 meters for 3 minutes in seawater. Learn more about waterproof features.
And, with the 2-year worry-free guarantee, if it breaks, return it and we’ll replace it for free. Find out more.
We’ve also included a cover made to last, with magnets that close the cover securely and a durable exterior that protects it from scratches. Just like a book, it opens and closes to wake the Kindle Paperwhite Kids or put it to sleep, and is available in a range of kid-friendly designs.
Kid tested, parent approved
Set educational goals and manage content with easy-to-use parental controls. With Parent Dashboard, you can adjust age filters, add books to your child’s library, view reading progress, and more. And because Kindle Paperwhite Kids is designed only for reading, in Amazon Kids, kids don’t have access to the Internet or social media. Kindle Paperwhite Kids even offers OpenDyslexic, a font preferred by some readers with dyslexia.
