B is for Basketball

B is for Basketball was shortlisted for the First Nations Communities READ program for 2014-2015!  We are thrilled to have been nominated alongside so many amazingly talented authors and illustrators!

B is for Basketball was also the official book of the 2011 All Native Basketball Tournament.  These games have been held in Prince Rupert, British Columbia for over 50 years. Since its inception, the Tournament has become an important cultural gathering.

B is For Basketball was created in collaboration with the students and teachers of School District No. 50 on Haida Gwaii.  It is a tribute, and it is a labour of love.
