As parents, we’re constantly trying to make decisions for the wellness of our children—and many times the choices are pretty black or white: You pick fruit instead of a cookie as a side with dinner. You teach them to say “please,” even if you have to remind them 100 times a day. You make sure they wash their hands, brush their teeth and get some physical activity in each day.
Sarah starts kindergarten this fall, and as I have learned from my current kindergartener, kids are immersed with technology as soon as they walk in the doors.
Because technology is now so infused with the school curriculum, it provides the kids with different ways to learn and to even read books.
Books have been a life long passion of mine. Even now as an adult, once I find a good book, it’s hard for me to put it down. The love that I have for books is the same love that I want for children to have for them.
One fun way we have introduced books outside of our nightly storytime is through, the girls Fire HD 8 Kids Edition Tablet.
Fire HD 8 Kids Edition tablet
The Fire HD 8 Kids Edition Tablet provides educational and entertaining content kids love. Each tablet comes with a one-year subscription to Amazon FreeTime Unlimited. FreeTime Unlimited provides kids access to over 20,000 books, videos, Audible books, educational apps, and games that are age-appropriate and hand-curated by the Amazon FreeTime team.
Plus, kids also have access over 1,000 age-appropriate, Spanish language books, videos, educational apps, games, and Audible books, plus thousands of kid-friendly and hand-curated websites and web videos.
The parental controls on the girls Fire HD 8 Kids Edition tablet allows my husband and I to set time limits, adjust age filters, enable/disable web browser access, and choose whether to allow in-app purchasing (which we don’t allow).
Parents can also use the Parent Dashboard to review the digital content their kids are using in FreeTime; this means I can see which apps my kids are using and for how long. This allows us to determine how to manage time limits and educational goals, and remotely adjust their child’s FreeTime settings.
I can preselect books that I want the girls to have access too, while being able to let them have a wide variety of different topics (from fairy tales to animals).
I also love that I can choose books at varying levels, while Sarah is just now learning sight words, Isla is already reading level one and two books.
