The best gift for little readers — the Kindle Paperwhite Kids is $50 off ahead of October's Prime Day

If you're an avid reader, having a Kindle can be a game-changer. No more hauling several books around on vacation: All you need to do is slip this handy (and small!) device into your bag. Well, kids can get in on the action, too, and at a hefty discount. Right now, Amazon is offering an impressive $50 off its Kindle Paperwhite Kids e-reader — days before Amazon's Early Access Sale even begins. For just $110 (down from $160), you'll get the Kindle, a year of books from Amazon Kids+, a kid-friendly cover, and a two-year warranty.

Kindle Paperwhite Kids has all the great features you love in the adult version of Kindle, but with younger ones in mind. It has a black and white glare-free display and a battery life that can last for 10 weeks (not a typo!). Unlike tablets, this is focused solely on reading, so you don't have to worry about your child getting distracted by apps and games while they're "reading."

Kindle Paperwhite Kids has an army of fans. "Really appreciate how a kindle allows for the ease of digital books without the headaches of also having to monitor web, YouTube chatting and other distractions that laptops, cellphones and iPads have," said one five-star review. "Also like the ease of word look-ups for my 11-year-old son so he can expand vocabulary."

Other parents say the e-reader has encouraged their children to read more. "My daughter is 11 years old, and she loves her Kindle. She is glued to it. Best decision ever," said one. While another shopper wrote: "Bought this item for my 11-year-old granddaughter. She loves it and has been using it to read almost every night since."

Right now the Kindle Paperwhite Kids comes with a free year of access to Amazon Kids+, allowing your child to check out more than a thousand books (after that it's $5 per month).
