My favorite holiday title is: Christmas Presents: Holiday Poetry

I am: Lee Bennett Hopkins, from Keystone, South Dakota.

This book is my favorite because: "No because I created the volume, but because there are few, if any, early readers which extol the holiday in this blessed way."

My favorite holiday tradition is: "My favorite holiday tradition was my Grandmother reading us Moore's The Night Before Christmas every Christmas Eve before bedtime."
