Allie's Basketball Dream

This is a picture book about a girl named Allie who loves basketball. She and her Dad head to the park, but the courts are already full. As she practicies, people keep telling her that basketball is really for boys. Read the book to see how she handles everything.

My favorite part of the story is when Allie describes how her aunt won a basketball trophy. It reminds me of stories of when my Grandpa played basketball in college for Colorado State University. It made me happy to know that girls can play too.

I recommend this book to people who like basketball, especially those girls that love to shoot hoops.
