Amazon announced the next generation of Kindle yesterday—the lightest and smallest Kindle yet. The new Kindle combines premium features with an affordable price, including a 300 ppi high-resolution 6-inch display, USB-C charging, up to six weeks of battery life, and space for thousands of books with twice the storage. The same features are available with Kindle Kids, which includes a one-year subscription to Amazon Kids+, which gives children unlimited access to thousands of kid-friendly books.
All-New High-Resolution Display
Kindle and Kindle Kids have a 6-inch, glare-free, 300 ppi high-resolution display for laser-quality text and clear graphics. Dark mode and adjustable front lights make reading comfortable in bright sunlight or no light. The device includes user favourites like X-Ray, which reveals facts about individuals or places in a book, and a built-in dictionary. The Kindle App for iOS and Android allows you to register your device in fewer steps and start reading faster.
Amazon Lightest and Most Compact Kindle
Kindle and Kindle Kids are the lightest and most compact Kindle versions available. The device’s six-week battery life increases reading time, while the USB-C connector simplifies charging. The new Kindle has 16GB of storage, which is twice as much as the old one and can hold thousands of books.
More for Young Readers
Since the first Kindle Kids device appeared three years ago, kids have read for approximately 3 billion minutes without games, videos, social media, or apps. The average kid reader spends more than an hour a day on their Kindle, making it the perfect reading partner for 7–13-year-olds. Every Kindle Kids comes with a one-year subscription to Amazon Kids+, offering unlimited access to thousands of books. Kids can discover their favourite titles from a huge variety, encouraging them to read. Amazon Kids+ includes:
Latest hits and award-winners: In the Amazon Kids+ collection, you can find books like Divergent, Artemis Fowl, and Diary of a Wimpy Kid. You can also find books from Big Nate, Percy Jackson, the Enchanted Forest Chronicles, Harry Potter, and more.
Add from your library: Add new releases, bestsellers, and over a million $2.99 titles to your child’s Kindle Kids library.
Switch between reading and listening: Kids can utilise Bluetooth-enabled speakers or headphones with Audible to listen to books. Amazon Kids+ has hundreds of Audible books, including tween fiction like “Escape from the Overworld,” classics like “The Secret Garden,” and Audible Originals like “Interview with the Robot” and “The Mystwick School of Musicraft.”
Parents can create reading and bedtime schedules using the Amazon Parent Dashboard for Kindle Kids. Kids can request books for their parents’ library, and literacy tools like Word Wise and Vocabulary Builder help with word definitions and flashcards. With its light design, kid-friendly features, and longer battery life, the Kindle Kids makes reading fun, easy, and convenient.
