Best of BFWP: The Frozen Frog Challenge

It's me! The Little Sister and the Mom is typing my words for me. One of our friends, who lives in a very wonderful place in Detroit called Brightmoor, shared a video all about what happens to frogs in the winter. I liked it so much that I decided to name the challenge after it! Here is more about the frog:
Wood Frog (Rana sylvatica), are common in the woods where we live, and they FREEZE in the winter, then in the spring the little frozen frogs thaw and come back to life. They are funny little frogs that look like a little robber, they are good, really, really good jumpers. Watch the video to be wow-ed!

Here is more about The Frozen Frog Challenge: What do frogs have to do with books? Well I learn a lot, really a lot, of cool and interesting things from books. What we want to know this week is all about books that teach you very cool things, like frozen frogs. Tell us the names of the books and the cool things you've learned from them (the books can be fiction or non-fiction.)

Please use the following format for your comment:
Title of the Book, Author, and your thoughts on what the book taught you.
