Lexile number for a book

I have one book that is a stage A and does not have a Lexile number on it. It is The Last Place Sports Poems of Jeremy Bloom. Can you please advise?

  • Because poems are not written in prose/complete sentences, they cannot be Lexiled. They are often noted as being NP, ie non prose.


    Many times poetry is not assigned a Lexile. The editors of READ 180 have found the book to be of an appropriate reading level to match Stage A sudents in this case. Use the suggested Level that matches the student's software Level for assigning the reading of this type of book. Dee Ask Dee at the READ 180 Community
