True-life stories can be more dramatic than fictional ones, and Sam the Sea Cow by Francine Jacobs features a real life-and-death situation for its hero. In Reading Rainbow: Sam the Sea Cow, Jason Robards narrates the tale of Sam, a manatee who becomes wedged in a sewer drain. The Miami Seaquarium comes to his rescue and provides a happy ending. At Sea World in Florida, LeVar Burton takes a good look at manatees, lending a hand as another manatee is released. The importance of wetlands is pointed out to him as he visits a wildlife refuge.
