While I am tapping the keyboard of my laptop doing some online duties such as browsing mom blog pages, Pinterest boards, and Instagram photos, my daughter was just sitting on the couch playing with her learning game apps on her new Amazon Kindle Fire. I bought the gadget few months ago in replacement to the previous tab that was broken within a month of purchase when she accidentally dropped it on the floor. The screen cracked and there’s now way I can fix it without paying over $80 for screen replacement. So I decided to buy a new one.
My friend recommended the Amazon Kindle Fire. But she said I have to buy one with the 8 gigabytes of storage because the basic applications and software alone consumes the half of it. I am happy that my darling daughter is enjoying her new gadget. The gadget is solid and durable. Once you get familiar with the settings and navigation, it’s easy to manipulate.
DD’s Amazon Kindle Fire
My darling daughter only uses it whenever she is relaxing after dinner and, sometimes but not frequently, before bedtime. During the day, I only let her use it for an hour because she has other activities to do like working on her pre-K (pre-Kindergarten) activity book, playing outside, biking, and going to town with me on errands days. There isn’t much applications in the Kindle Fire besides a few toddler game apps.
Right now, she is reading – yes my daughter is a beginner reader already – a book from Children’s Beginner Readers Kindle Edition.
Below are the story books I downloaded to her Kindle Fire. They’re free on Amazon.

‘Found a grasshopper on the ground.
What’s Your Child’s Play Style? This was a quiz from Mom365
website. I took the quiz trying to find out what my little girl’s personality at play time.
By Wendy Schuman
Get thee to a playground. Explorers are bundles of energy. These little go-getters prefer movement to sedentary activities—banging, poking, tearing, throwing. Large-motor skills are their forte, and they tend to be early walkers. They’ll enjoy building a block tower as long as they can knock it over afterwards. A lot of their make-believe play involves zooming around like a horsey or airplane. Playtime with kids their own age usually involves playing chase, jumping up and down, and sliding down furniture. Their love of movement extends to turning the pages of books, especially flap books.
Yes, my darling daughter is an explorer. She loves examining things around her-big and small. She also loves collecting things that she finds and she calls them ‘treasures’. When unsure about something, she doesn’t hesitate to ask questions. Hungry for knowledge and curious about any thing. She is super active and enjoys playing pretend.
As a pre-schooler, my DD is now interested with activity books like coloring, painting, trace…etc. So I buy Pre-school or Pre-K activity books that will get her Math, writing, shapes, ABC’s, and comprehension a start.
