Amazon on Monday announced the launch of the Kindle Kids Edition, a new version of the popular e-reader designed for children.

“Featuring a six-inch, 167 ppi e-ink display with an adjustable front light, Kindle Kids Edition makes it comfortable to read in a variety of places,” the company said in a press release.

The device also boasts a battery “that lasts weeks” and comes with several child-friendly features, including a built-in dictionary.

On Kindle Kids, children can earn badges as they reach goals and build a library of flashcards for new words they learn as they read as well.

“With enhanced browsing and search, kids can locate titles without the exact spelling. And with smart recommendations, kids can find books related to the genres, authors, and characters they love,” Amazon added.

Currently available to pre-order for $109.99, the Kindle Kids Editon will go on sale at the end of the month with a number of “kid-friendly” cases.

In addition to the Kindle for kids, Amazon also released a new version of its Fire HD 10 Kids Edition tablet on Monday as well.

“It includes a Fire HD 10 tablet, featuring a vivid 10.1-inch 1080p Full HD display, 32GB of storage with up to 512GB of expandable storage via microSD, up to 12 hours of mixed-use battery life, and USB-C for reversible charging that’s easy for kids to plug in,” the company revealed.

The device will also go on sale at the end of October for $199.99.
