My kids (9-year olds) each got a Kindle for Christmas (thanks Gramma and Grampa!). It looks like even for them to “buy” free books, this is how I had to set them up:
- Create an Amazon account for them
- Manage Account, 1-Click Settings
- Turn on 1-Click for the account
- Add an address
- Click the link to make it the 1-Click default address
- Make this address the billing address
After this, my kids were able to “purchase” free books (and gift cards can be added to their balance), all without requiring a credit card number. Thanks, Amazon for making this so simple! 🙂

We have a puzzle of the United Stated of America and this is what I heard my wife saying to one of the boys this morning over the phone…
Today at dinnertime, Joshua, one of our two-years olds, climbed up onto my chair and sat down, expecting to be fed.
Daddy: Joshua, that’s Daddy’s chair, you need to sit in your own chair.
Joshua: No, sit, sit … chair!
Daddy: But if you sit there, where am I going to sit?
After thinking for a minute, Joshua pointed at the chair with his booster-seat strapped to it and said “Sit there”.
Daddy: [Laughing] No, Daddy’s too big to sit there.
At this point, Sam turned to me excitedly and asked: “Do you realize you are actually having a conversation with your son?”.
I’ve thought about it, and of course I’ve had other “conversations” with both Joshua and Jacob before, but Sam asked me to remember this one in case she forgets it someday.
As you wish.
