The all-new Kindle E-reader plus case

For the longest time, I always believed that I was born in the wrong time period. When I was younger, I thought I most definitely belonged in the 50's and 60's when foxtrot, swing, hand jive and cha cha were all the rage. Now, in the 21st century, I can't help but think how much I would have thrived as a student today surrounded by educational technology and innovative ideas. Take, for example, the all-new Kindle E-reader. With its thin and ultra light design, kids can keep up with their latest novel study by reading an e-book version without screen glare, making it easy on the eyes. And because it holds thousands of books and boasts a battery that lasts for weeks, they can enjoy their own personal mobile library anywhere they go without distractions such as alerts or notifications. But what makes this device all the more innovative is the built-in Kindle FreeTime feature.

Celebrate Reading Milestones with Kindle FreeTime

It's not screen time - it's book time

The Kindle FreeTime feature allows parents to set up profiles for their children and set reading goals. For example, you could set their daily reading goal to 30 minutes and, if they achieve that goal, they will be rewarded with achievement badges. Because you can customize these goals, you can slowly increase them as your child grows in their reading ability. Badges and personalized goals would have been a big motivator for me as a reluctant reader, I am sure. Parents are kept in the loop with a progress report that shows total time spent reading, number of words looked up, badges earned, and books read. Plus, they can rest assured that their kids are enjoying books in a simple, fun, and safe environment, knowing that they cannot access the browser or make purchases in the Kindle Store thanks to best-in-class parental controls.

Celebrate Reading Milestones with Kindle FreeTime

While families can celebrate reading milestones with Kindle FreeTime achievement badges, kids reading their first chapter books can tackle more challenging books with a little help from Word Wise. Available on many popular English language titles, Word Wise provides short and simple definitions that automatically appear above difficult words, making it easier to enjoy and quickly understand what they are reading. They can also tap on a word to bring up a simple card with definitions, synonyms, and more, improving their vocabulary.

Win a $100 Amazon.ca Gift Card!
