Series Title: Reading Rainbow
Chickens are not the only animals that lay eggs. In this book we learn that many animals lay eggs. This means they are oviparous.
A look at all the different kinds of animals that hatch from eggs is the emphasis of this episode. LeVar begins by visiting a hatchery and finding out how chicks hatch. Then he joins a biologist to visit loggerhead turtles in Florida as they lay their eggs in the sand on the beach. After the turtles hatch they make their way back to the ocean.
