Lily, shown in the image above, is the beloved beagle of the Nielsen family. When Lily came into their lives Tonya Nielsen (founder of Leveled Reader.com) found new inspiration. It is Lily’s spontaneity and fun loving nature that is the core of what she wants visitors of Leveled Reader.com to experience. Tonya believes that children respond best when they are in an environment that is safe and fun. She also believes literacy is key to a child’s success.
As a mother, Tonya Nielsen has always believed that literacy is one of the most important things she could give to her son Andrew. One of the challenges she and her husband Mark have experienced as parents is finding up to date and interesting literature that meets the guidelines their son’s educators have set.
This is why Tonya has assembled a team of educators and other professionals to bring the power of the leveling system to everyday popular literature.
We are glad that you, whether teacher, parent, child or supporter of children, have chosen to share this belief. We hope you will come often to Leveled Reader.com to find inspiration and the best in current, exciting reading materials to meet the literacy needs of the youth in your life!
