By Dianna Dilworth 

kindleAmazon is looking to get kids into e-books with a new offer called the Kindle for Kids Bundle.

The bundle includes an ad-free Kindle device with a two-year extended warranty from SquareTrade to cover replacements against accidental spills and drops. The device is outfitted with Kindle Free Time, a tool to help kids, parents and teachers track reading progress and earn badges for meeting reading goals.

The device allows kids to check out books from the library. A parental password is required to purchase e-books from the store. The bundle costs $99.
