Kindle Daily Deal: 125 books for “kids of all ages” for $1.99 each
are a great introduction to those daily bargains for those who might just be starting their Kindle journey (or perhaps I should say “Voyage”) ;), and present veteran Kindleers with some cool options.
As one of my regular readers and commenters, Lady Galaxy, put it:
“…Lots of great selections to start out a library for kids who got Kindles for Christmas.”
That’s true…but I have to say, that lots of adults read the books that are classified as “children’s books” as well. My tendency is to think of children’s books as ones which include that younger group, but don’t exclude the older one.
You should never be ashamed of what you read…assuming it’s legal and such. 🙂
Please check the price before you click or tap that “Buy” button. These prices may not apply in your country (I have readers all over the world), and they are only good today. Books can also go in and out of deals like this, although with the KDD (Kindle Daily Deal), that’s unlikely, from what I’ve seen.
Before I get to the ones they have listed as for “children of all ages”, let me point out a few others:
- The original Ian Fleming James Bond books (now published as e-books by Amazon) are $1.99 each…not for children 😉
- They have 43 (at time of writing) “top-rated romances” on sale. Top-rated doesn’t necessarily mean “best known”, but they can be a good opportunity to expand your horizons and discover new authors
I think it’s also worth noting that all of the above are part of
meaning that members (and you may have just started a free month) can read them at no additional cost.
Now, on to those 125 “children’s books”! These are some of the stand-outs to me:
- A Wizard of Earthsea by Ursula K. Le Guin: a fantasy classic, 4.1 stars out of 5, 624 customer reviews…first in a series. Also in Kindle Unlimited (KU)
- Lois Lowry books: Number the Stars (KU), Gossamer (KU)
- The Sign of the Beaver by Elizabeth George Speare (Newberry winner)
- Farewell to Manzanar (KU) by James D. Houston and Jeanne Wakatsuki Houston: a non-fiction treasure which has been widely lauded about the Japanese internment camps in the USA…or rather, one person’s experience in one
- Sleep Like a Tiger (KU) by Mary Logue, illustrated by Pamela Zagarenski: Caldecott Medal picture book (note: text-to-speech is not enabled on this title, but I assume that it is due to the text being part of the image and therefore inaccessible to the software, not because the access was blocked by the publisher)
- Catherine, Called Birdy (KU) by Karen Cushman
- An American Plague: The True and Terrifying Story of the Yellow Fever Epidemic of 1793 (KU) by Jim Murphy (Newbery honoree)
- Sing Down the Moon (KU) by Scott O’Dell
- Mike Mulligan and His Steam Shovel by Virgina Lee Burton (some of us may remember being read this by Captain Kangaroo)
- Miracles on Maple Hill by Virginia Sorensen
- Curious George by H.A. Rey and Margaret Rey: a part of childhood
- The Astonishing Adventures of Fanboy and Goth Girl (KU) by Barry Lyga
- Yes, She Can! Women’s Sports Pioneers by Glenn Stout
- Mary Poppins in the Park (KU) by P.L. Travers and Mary Shepard…not the first of the series about the magical nanny, but part of it
