It is designed specifically for kids, as Amazon says, ‘It's reading time, not screen time.'

It also features useful tools to help young readers, including vocabulary building, which creates flashcards of words looked up, and ‘Word Wise’ which gives short and simple definitions to difficult words.

Another great part of this deal is the two-year warranty, so no need to worry about any accidents or adventures your kindle might go on.

You can simply send it back and Amazon will replace it. It also has weeks of battery life, so it makes the perfect gadget for holidays and long car journeys.

Customers have been loving the Kindle and have left plenty of rave reviews.

One wrote, ‘It is brilliant! Really easy to set up and get hold of the free books (plus loads to choose from). My daughter was very keen to get one of these and from the poor reviews on here I was dreading setting it up. It literally took me 5 mins and was very easy.’

Another said, ‘Got this for my 10-year-old son in a desperate last-ditch attempt to get him to like reading. It worked!’
