Read in December, 2011

"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.
