Amazon has bundled together a Kindle, cover, and protection plan with the child in mind. If you are thinking about buying this for a child you might want to take the following into consideration. It could turn into a great gift or a dust collector, depending on what the child wants.
* First of all, this is the same 7th generation Kindle being advertised for $79. I own it and love it. * This is a dedicated e-reader. This simply means that this Kindle is used for reading books. You cannot watch videos or play games. It is not a tablet computer. It is designed to read on. * This is not a color e-reader. Any book you buy will be in black and white, well, greyscale really.

It's not a portal into the worlds of the internet. It's not even a photography or videography tool. And that's what is so wonderful about this incredibly affordable Kindle package. It's for reading. Honestly, my review could stop there -- but I have a few more things to say.
Kindle's have been around for several years now, and the technology is sound and tested. Reading on this device is not only similar to reading on paper, it also references the feel and aesthetics of reading an old fashioned book with pages that turn. So why get a Kindle when books are so much like it? For me, there are three simple answers: 1) you can store hundreds of books on this device, 2) it can actually be easier (physically) to read on a Kindle, and 3) reading can be a little bit more fun on a Kindle, and any little bit of incentive...
