This article presents an annotated list of websites with data that describe young people by community and, in the following section, book review resources for diverse children’s and young adult literature. The very first section will point to general resources based on the U.S. & Canada, and then will dip into the specific places served by PNLA. State and Provincial education departments all have some-thing like school report cards. Searches performed aimed at finding state/ provincial or nonprofit agencies providing reports about demographics, disabilities, at-risk behaviors and resiliency factors. Book reviewing sites were found through various articles, databases, and recommendations from teacher-librarians. The final section lists a few books that are classified gatherings of book reviews and some periodicals that focus on or have book reviews in their pages.
