My favorite holiday title is: The Littlest Angel, by Charles Tazewell
I am: Deborah Martinez Martinez
This book is my favorite because: "This is a sweet story about Heaven's little angel who misses his time on Earth. The gift this littlest one gives to the Baby Jesus is the most treasured. I just like the idea that the simplest, most heartfelt things are the greatest treasures, in heaven and here. This began as a radio play although I didn't know that until after I had re-written it as a script for my daughter and nieces to act out with puppets for Christmas."
My favorite holiday tradition is: "I enjoy cooking the special foods reserved for the holidays. Empanaditas, or little sweet meat pies, are my favorite food."
