B is for Basketball: An Alphabet Book is an alphabet picture book written by the staff and students of School District 50 Haida Gwaii. The idea for an official book for the 2011 All Native Basketball Tournament was the impetus for the creation of the book. It is meant to celebrate this yearly sports event held in Prince Rupert, British Columbia. Basketball has a history among the First Nations in British Columbia. Parents and Elders saw a need for a book about Aboriginal basketball. Each letter of the alphabet has a colour illustration about some aspect of playing and watching basketball.
