What other animals hatch from eggs besides chickens? In Reading Rainbow: Chickens Aren't the Only Ones, young viewers will find there are many, including loggerhead turtles. The multi-award winning series features one picture book per episode, field trips and other activities related to the topic, and the review of several books with similar subject matter by a panel of youngsters. Host LeVar Burton and a biologist investigate the turtles in Florida, who return to the beach to deposit their eggs. Among the reviewed books are Egg to Chick by Millicent E. Selsam and Turtle and Tortoise by Vincent Serventy.
