Kindle FreeTime

Kindle FreeTime lets you create a personalised experience for up to four children, giving you
complete control over what content each child can access. Kids earn achievements that help
them keep track of their personal reading accomplishments.

Kindle FreeTime automatically blocks access to the Kindle Store, the Experimental Web
Browser, Goodreads and Wikipedia. Children can only read books that you have added to
their library.

Kindle FreeTime Unlimited is an optional monthly subscription that offers thousands of
books, apps, movies and TV shows for children between the ages of three and ten. Tap the
Characters button on the toolbar to view content categories. Apps, Movies and TV shows
are not available on your Kindle E-Reader, but can be accessed at no additional charge on
your Fire tablet or Amazon Fire TV. Not all books included in Kindle FreeTime Unlimited
are supported on your Kindle E-Reader due to publisher exclusions, but can be viewed on
your Fire tablet.
