With New York schools closed into April, parents are scrambling to find resources to keep their kids' brains active and engaged.

Amazon is helping by slashing the price of its learning tablet for kids by 40 percent. Right now, the 16 GB Fire 7 Kids Edition with a 7-inch display is $59.99, compared to its usual price of $99.99. Amazon is even throwing in free standard shipping!

That price also includes one year of Amazon FreeTime Unlimited and gives your kids access to 20,000 apps, games, books, videos, audiobooks and educational content from PBS Kids, Nickelodeon, and Disney.
