      Kindle tablet for kids makes it easy for them to be able to explore their reading skills by use of an educational tool to enhance their reading culture. Loaded with fun and games this is bound to get kids coming back for more over and over again. A good thing too since they need to keep up with technology as well in these times too. http//

      I love my Kindle and think technology is an essential part of life these days. I'm torn because of my lifelong love of books and wondering whether introduction of the Kindle as a substitute too early in the process might deny my child the pleasures of reading an actual book. Besides, when the battery runs down...

      @Bonfire Designs: Bonfire, it's funny you say that. My nieces have them in elementary school! I see the pros and cons to the kids having them. At least they don't have to keep up with and carry all those books. It teaches them technology and how to be 'responsible' and take care of things. On the downside, those things are pretty delicate considering you have 3rd, 4th, and 5th graders running around with them. On the other hand, they only a a $50 replacement fee which is better than a $150 book fee. So yeah, pretty good idea.

      Kindle Fire is a great gift idea for kids, I think schools should stop worrying about printing text books and give each child a kindle fire for the school year with parental controls on the internet part. Great idea and the wonderful wave of the future.

      I find it hard to believe that anyone would give their child a device that connects them to the Internet.
