Follow these steps:

Create a Child Profile in Your Amazon Household

You can create up to four child profiles in your Amazon Household to choose which content is shared with your kids. Existing Amazon FreeTime and Amazon FreeTime child profiles will be automatically added to your Amazon Household.

  • Create a child profile from your Kindle:
    1. From the Home screen, tap the Menu icon.
    2. Tap Settings, then Registration and Household.
    3. Tap Household and Family Library, then tap Add a New Person at the bottom of the screen.
    4. Tap Add Child, enter your parental controls password, and then enter your child’s name, birthday, and gender. Tap Next after each screen.
    5. Select the titles you want to be included in your child’s library, then tap Next.
    6. You can review your child’s profile and reading settings, then tap Done.


  • Create a child profile from the Amazon website:
    1. Go to Manage Your Content and Devices and sign into your account.
    2. Select Settings, and then select Add Child under Households and Family Library.
    3. Enter your child’s name, birthday, and gender, and pick a profile icon. Select Add Child Profile. While viewing Manage Your Content and Devices, you can select titles for your child profiles. To learn more, go to About Family Library.

After a child profile has been set up, it can be quickly accessed from Kindle FreeTime on your device. From Home, tap the Menu icon, then tap Kindle FreeTime.

Child profiles can only be accessed from devices that support Kindle FreeTime. Go to Using a Profile to learn more about using this feature on your device.

I never tapped on any of my books to be shared but they are still there. I deleted her account and tried aging they are still there.

Follow the second step, manage the profile on Amazon's website, then select the books to be shared. If you select none, it will show all of them. So try selecting one, then reset her kindle and go into that account again.
