Hello Anonymous,

Thank you for your interest in the Lexile® Framework for Reading!

Lexile® measures analyze the semantic and syntactic characteristics of a book, and do not describe the content of a book. Sometimes a Lexile measure by itself is not enough information to choose a particular book for a particular reader. Parents and educators should use their discretion to decide if a book’s content is age-appropriate for their readers. Some books get Lexile codes—two-letter designations that appear before the Lexile measure.

Thanks again and please let us know if you have any further questions.
