Read more challenging books
Word Wise makes it easier to enjoy and quickly understand more challenging books. Short and simple definitions appear above difficult words automatically, so you can continue reading with fewer interruptions.
Tap on a word to call up a simple card with definitions, synonyms and more. You can adjust the number of hints you see with a simple slider.
Expanded X-Ray for books
X-Ray lets you explore the “bones of the book”. See all the passages across a book that mention relevant ideas, fictional characters, historical figures, places or topics of interest. X-Ray’s new timeline view lets you easily flip through notable passages to remind yourself of what’s happened in the book, or navigate easily through images.
Enhance your vocabulary
Words looked up in the dictionary are added to Vocabulary Builder automatically to expand your knowledge and reinforce retention. Swipe through your vocabulary words, quiz yourself with flashcards, and instantly see those words in context.
Squeeze in that last chapter
See at a glance how long it will take to finish a chapter or book. Time to Read is personalised based on your reading speed and is constantly updated as your speed and habits change.

Whispersync technology synchronises your last page read, bookmarks and annotations across all your devices so you can pick up exactly where you left off reading.

Kindle for Kids sets and celebrates goals
Encourage kids to read even more. Kindle for Kids lets you create personalised profiles for kids, and give them access to titles from your collection of books.
Kids are rewarded with achievement badges when they reach their goals. A progress report keeps parents updated on total time spent reading, number of words looked up, badges earned and books read.
Read more challenging books
For kids reading their first chapter books, Word Wise, available on many popular English-language titles, makes it easier to enjoy and quickly understand more challenging books.
Short and simple definitions appear above difficult words automatically, so they can keep reading with fewer interruptions.
Tap on a word to call up a simple card with definitions, synonyms and more. Kids can adjust the number of hints they see with a simple slider.
Enhance their vocabulary
Kindle makes it easy for young readers to add new words to their vocabulary. Words looked up on Kindle are automatically added to Vocabulary Builder, where kids can quiz themselves with flashcards to reinforce new word retention.
Kindle is designed for reading, which means zero distractions for kids.
Parents can have peace of mind that kids won’t access inappropriate content or websites, or accidentally make purchases as Kindle for Kids blocks access to browsing and purchasing in the Kindle store, access to the Internet, access to Wikipedia, and disables social sharing.
A Kindle with Wi-Fi is a great choice if you already have a high-speed Internet connection and wireless router set up in your home.
