    1. Ajeemah and His Son is about Ajeemah and his son planning Atu's wedding. Ajeemah and his son were captured by slave catchers. Ajeemah and his son were separated they went to different places. Ajeemah was mad of the vision about seeing his son dead so he married some woman that helped him.I connect this book to Copper Sun. Ajeemah and His Son connect to Copper Son because they both are captured by slave catchers. By the end of the book they find their places in life. They become free people.I gav [...]

    2. This short poetic narrative carries a heavy load. Ajeemah and his son, Atu, are captured by slave traders en route to Atu's wedding.

    3. This book gives an accurate representation of the slave trade and treatment of slaves in Jamaica. It is not overly graphic, and it is written from the perspective of the kidnapped Africans, which gives the reader a human connection to the period and the subject.

    4. ajeemah and his son is basically about a man named ajeemah and it was the time of slavery. slavery had seized but then it had started again. ajjemah's son sends his father to give his daughter-in-law a pair of slippers but then once his father is gone then slavery begins once again.

    5. Fifth grade +."A father and his eighteen-year-old son are each affected differently by their experiences as slaves in Jamaica in the early 19th century."A powerful story for intermediate readers. No graphic language. African dialects. No chapters. An amazing depiction of slave life.

    6. Its a good book and i think people should read these types of books more often and ajeemah and his son is both africans.
