This book is really good and interesting, but sometimes is difficult to understand. I admire Olaudah because he was extremely hardworking and brave. I would like to read this book again because it is very authentic.
Olaudah learned many things. He learned to speak English well and he learned to read and to write. He also learned to fire the gun on the ship and he learned navigation. Olaudah helped his master a lot. That's why he won his freedom at 21.
The main characters are Olaudah Equiano and the slave masters. The main idea is about an 11 year old boy who was kidnapped and taken into slavery in 1755 and who won won his freedom when he was 21 years old. I admire him because he he is spiritual and hardworking.
Olaudah is an example to others because he is smart and loyal. This is what led him to what everyone, of any race wants: FREEDOM.
I really liked this book because it actually felt like I could picture what was happening at times. The book seemed like an action/adventure kind of book.
I liked this book because it showed real events going on in the 1700's. I would highly recommend it to anyone interested in adventure books and books about slavery.
Olaudah is brave because he stood up for himself in some places. He is strong and hardworking. He is honest because he has never tried to run away from his masters.
Even though he was a slave, Olaudah worked hard for his masters. He worked harder than the free white men who got paid for their work.Read more ›
The Kidnapped Prince is an autobiography that tells about an African boy's life and how he was carried into slavery and then became free. Olaudah's bravery, hard work, and honesty helped him become free. I didn't like the book. It was boring. I would still recommend it to other people because they may like it. (Tejenae, 5th grader, Oakland, CA)
The Kidnapped Prince is an autobiography that tells the story of an African boy who was kidnapped into slavery and how he found his freedom. Equiano was respectful, loyal, honest, and brave. These qualities helped him find freedom. Equiano taught me that you should be grateful for what you have. Equiano lost both of his parents and his sister but he was grateful for what he had. I would reommend this book because it teaches you things you don't know. (Alaezia, 5th grader, Oakland, CA)
The Kidnapped Prince is an autobiography about a young boy who was kidnapped from Africa and taken into slavery. There were many characteristics that helped Olaudah Equiano become free. He was sad, brave, and smart. This book showed me how slavery happened. It made me sad, because Equiano was separated from his family. I think others would like this book, so they could learn more about slavery. (Raven, 5th grader, Oakland, CA)
What I learned from his story is to be more brave, more honest and more caring. These things could help me have a better life. I recommend this book to people because I want people to read it. It is a good story.
Leo, 5th grade.
