This story was a wonderful portrayal of the journey to freedom during the time of the Civil war. The son and father duo paint a vivid picture of unity and determination. With the smarts of his father they devise a plan to be free. They look out on the water wishing to be with the union ships in the distance but are stuck on the confederate ship. Until the father comes up with the plan to flee during the night on the confederate ship and flee past the fleet of confederate ships to freedom. The story historical in itself, showing the hardships and wants of African Americans. That the urge for freedom was so strong and so near they had to take the leap. In this story they are fortunate enough to trick the confederates into letting them pass, which leads them to the union ships, and to freedom. This story is great to inform readers that freedom was not always here and that when someone yearns for something that yields a better outcome they can achieve anything. Whether it goes against the rules of society, risky decisions can turn out to be worth wild in the end. This battle for freedom is heart jerking and sympathetic feelings are poured out throughout the story. ( )

Freedom ship is a story about a young boy who is trying to escape slavery from the south during the Civil War. The boy's name was Samuel and his family worked on a Confederate ship that escaped during the war. This book shows how dangers that slaves and to face while trying to escape as well as how hard their time was on the ship. The illustration in the book is amazing as it helped set the correct mode the author was trying to set. ( )

Freedom Ship is about a young boy named Samuel during the Civil War. His family worked on a Confederate ship and secretly escaped to the union side on a dangerous covert mission in the middle of the night. The artwork is very dark to simulate the mostly night theme of the narrative. ( )

Freedom Ship is about a boy's journey to escape the south with his family during the civil war. This story does an excellent job depicting the dangers the slaves had to face when escaping as well as their duties and lifestyles before hand. The beautiful illustrations perfectly help build the tension and set the mood when the story needs it. Like many of the books in the historical fiction genre, I would pair this with a lesson on the time period/events the book is representing, in this case the civil war and slavery. ( )

Freedom ship is a story about a little boy who is stuck dealing with the civil war. He details and teaches us about who the confederate soldiers and who the union soldiers are. Samuel seems like a boy who knows his limits. He is well behaved and works hard to help his family. This story shows the hardship of African Americans and what they had to do just to have the freedom they deserved. Samuel and his family manage to flee the confederate soldiers in the middle of the night by fooling them and going over to the union sides. I think the fact that Samuel was nervous throughout thee story about being caught kept me as the reader in suspense also. I think that is what I loved the most about the book. Once I started, I was so curious about how it was going to end. The story teaches kids things about history in a fun way. ( )
