As leaves change color in autumn, monarch butterflies begin an incredibly long journey to places they have never seen before On tissue paper thin wings, the butterflies ride the wind as far as 3,000 miles to their winter homes How s that for a hook Expository writing does not have to be dull and boring Simon shows his readers how to craft a great informational text without putting his audience to sleep.Highly recommended.
