According to research by the American Psychological Association, only 20% of American teens report reading a book, magazine or newspaper daily for pleasure, but more than 80% report using social media daily.

Kendra Allen, M.Ed., is an educator with a passion to help parents, students, and the community regain a love for reading in a technology driven world.
