Give yourself the best learning partner with the help of the best kindle!


It shouldn’t be difficult to figure out which of the top Kindles and e-readers are ideal for your child. However, Amazon had to add a layer of complexity to the situation. It currently provides 3 Paperwhite Kindles and 2 extra models, as well as children’s versions of both the normal and Paperwhite. Reading a page-turner used to be simple, but it’s no longer so.

While you can test the newest Kindle alternative, the basic Kindle Paperwhite remains your favorite e-reader and the greatest Kindle overall. It features a better and bigger display than the previous generation, as well as USB-C charging and longer battery life. But if you prefer physical buttons or do not want to spend more than $100 on them? Things become more tricky.

Plus right now, Amazon is making it much easier than this to switch including its new trade-in program which rewards you with a gift card based on the value of your Kindle and a voucher for 20% off a new one.

Here are some of the great Kindles till now, and you should buy one of them if you want your child’s future bright.

Kindle Paperwhite

Amazon Kindle Paperwhite

Small tweaks help great devices stay great, and also the latest Kindle Paperwhite is no exception (2021). It has the same basic design as earlier Kindles and Kindle Paperwhite models. Like a matte black casing and an e-ink display, but it’s bigger, with a 6.8-inch display. Because the borders are narrower, the gadget didn’t have to expand as much to fit the 6-inch display.

While the display is still super-sharp at 300 PPI, it now has an assortment of 17 LED backlights for very even illumination. It also has excellent waterproof (IPX8-rated) resistance.

After the bigger display, this year’s significant change is the switch from micro-USB to USB-C charging. Even if it’s just for the reverse port, it’s a good improvement. Faster charging isn’t expected. However, the micro USB connector has been there for far too long and is frequently fragile. So we’re glad to see it depart.

The Paperwhite costs $139 ($10 higher than prior years) and is a little less than half the price of the Kindle Oasis. However, it has one of the Oasis’ once-unique features: the ability to exude warmth.

Kindle Kids

Amazon’s newest Kindle improvements the Kindle by filling in the gaps and removing the clutter that jams up a standard Kindle. The colorful cases will appeal to children, while parents will appreciate Amazon‘s 2-year no-questions-asked guarantee. Much better, there are still no ads on the lock screen. In fact, this Kids Edition comes so near to a perfect Kindle interface that we wish Amazon would make it available as an option for adults who only want to read the book and aren’t interested in joining the Goodreads community.

Moreover, the Kindle Kids Version is otherwise identical to the 2019 Kindle. The screen is still inset, not flush with the frame, and you’ll get the 6-inch, 167 PPI display with front illumination.

It also comes with useful vocabulary-building features and a free year (worth $60) of Amazon Kids+ (aka FreeTime Unlimited), which includes hundreds of titles. Because the Kindle Kids Edition proved so popular, Amazon is also producing another Kindle Paperwhite Kids Edition. 

Kindle Paperwhite Signature Edition

What if you’ve had enough of little, gradual changes? Yes, the new Kindle Paperwhite (2021) has illuminating warmth, USB-C, and a slightly bigger screen. But Amazon does have the Kindle Paperwhite Signature Version for those who think this improvement is too minor which has the same 6.8-inch, 300-PPI display as the normal Paperwhite, but with thinner borders and amazingly even illumination. As well as IPX8-rated waterproofing. On top of that, there’s more.

The Kindle Paperwhite Signature Edition can really be recharged using Qi-based wireless chargers and has auto-adjusting illumination. Plus, there’s 4x the storage and no adverts on the screen. While not many of these characteristics will appeal to everyone, we’re confident that at least one will. However, it’s a somewhat expensive tablet.

Kindle Oasis

Amazon Kindle Oasis (2019)

With its polished metal back, bigger screen, tactile buttons, automated lighting changes, and highly well-lit screen (using 25 LEDs). The new Kindle Oasis still delivers Amazon‘s most elegant reading experience. The Oasis title comes from its IPX8 water resistance rating, which increases the resistance hour-long baths. As long as you have a Bluetooth device, the gadget can also play Audible audiobooks.

The curved back and tactile buttons on the Oasis make it simpler to handle and read your posts without touching the screen. While the Oasis is the greatest Kindle for those willing to spend a little more, we wish it wasn’t nearly twice as expensive as such Kindle Paperwhite.

Amazon Kindle (2019)

Would you rather put your money towards additional books? The most affordable Kindle e-reader costs $89, and a new feature makes it more appealing to bookworms on a budget. This E Ink tablet is lightweight and comfortable to use for long periods of time. As well as its design is identical to that of our top selection, the Paperwhite. The ordinary Kindle includes a touch-screen display as well, and Amazon customers can take advantage of Wikipedia connectivity and FreeTime Unlimited.

Front-facing illumination on the Kindle finally gets it closer to reality with the Paperwhite. Most bookworms, we’re betting, like to study mostly in dark and will not want to wake up a sleeping companion by switching on a house light. Overall, for someone on a budget, this is the greatest Kindle.

Amazon Kindle Nook GlowLight 3

Because Amazon does not control the whole e-reader market, we periodically evaluate e-readers from other companies. Whereas the Nook Glowlight 3 is just not superior to any Kindle. It does have a few modifications and additions that make it worth mentioning here. Its no-fuss reading interface is one of its better qualities. Since it steps aside when it will be time to study.

However, it lacks the waterproofing that Paperwhite provides for a $140 e-reader. Oh, and getting library books out has proven to be a difficult task. But what if you don’t want to buy an Amazon-created device? For them, the Glowlight 3 could be the ideal e-reader option. We’re looking into putting additional competitors to the test to see whether there’s a better choice for them.

How can you choose what is best for you?

Let us just begin with your budget because it’s the most straightforward method to make this decision.

If money isn’t an issue, you’ll see between the Kindle Paperwhite and the Kindle Oasis, which is a difficult decision. If you like your gadgets to be made of a more durable material that yet feels dependable. You’re probably thinking about the Paperwhite which has the same waterproofing and is identical in some ways to the Oasis.

However, if you’re bored of fiddling with menus and brightness settings, the Kindle Oasis is the device for you. Its display adapts to ambient lighting conditions automatically, which is maybe its most unusual feature overall — especially because its metallic, asymmetrical shape divides our workspace.


The Amazon Kindle Paperwhite is the greatest Kindle overall, and it’s perfect for most consumers. It costs $139, has a 6.8-inch, 300-PPI backlight display, 8GB of storage, and can tolerate being submerged in water. It’s essentially the Goldilocks choice: it’s neither too pricey nor too lacking in functionality, and it provides you with almost everything you could want in a Kindle in the form that most people like.

We’d enjoy the Paperwhite even more if it were a bit less expensive, but it’s clear that it’s the best gadget for reading in every situation. It’s a terrific way to consume a new book, or re-read a classic, whether your holiday is in the sunshine or shade. If you’re simply on a day trip to the beach, or if you’re consuming a riveting page-turner in the bath.

But it’s your choice whether you prefer our opinion or not it’s upon you.
