These lightweight e-readers can hold thousands of ebooks and audiobooks, making them convenient and cost-effective. Currently, they are available at some of their best prices to date.
During summer break, if you want to keep your kids entertained, you can purchase the new Kindle Kids on sale for $84.99 ($35 off) on Amazon, Best Buy, and Target. It’s similar to the standard Kindle but without ads and has parental controls. The package also includes a case, a two-year extended replacement guarantee, and a complimentary one-year subscription to Amazon Kids Plus featuring kid-friendly ebooks and audiobooks such as Percy Jackson and Harry Potter.
