Goodbye My Island

Goodbye My Island

by Jean Rogers

Esther Atoolik is twelve years old and her Alaskan village is getting smaller; there aren’t enough children to keep the school open. What to do? the people ask. Should we abandon our island in the Bering Sea that her people have lived on for centuries? Here is the tender, true story of Esther’s last season in her island home and the wonderful memories she carries with her. A chapter book illustrated with the drawings of Rie Muñoz.
