“ SPEAKING FROM EXPERIENCE” I own a Kindle fire and my children absolutely love the e reader device. The Kindle has the ability to acquire learning apps from Amazon that are just incredible for learning. When my children see new books that have just been released I can buy and add the books to the Kindle for future reading. The device is great for long car rides.
