At Diamond In The Rough we believe Readers are leaders, and learners are earners, and as a result we like to encourage our GEMS to read books that will nurture their minds and their spirits. The books listed on our Readers Are Leaders book list are suggested titles for our GEMS. For each book purchased through our organization, a portion of the proceeds will benefit Diamond In The Rough. We hope you will consider these and other titles and join us in our efforts to build strong leaders. If you have suggested titles to be added in the future, please send suggestions to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Disclaimer: Parents, in our online research, we have attempted to screen the books, for age-appropriate content and fitting DITR values. However, in most instances we are only able to review a portion of a book online. Please be advised that you should still review each book, as you deem necessary, before allowing your child(ren) to read it.
