The Sit Spot (from the Martin & Sylvia Series)

After a day at Wilderness School, Martin tells his sister and Daddy about finding a "sit spot" or personal spot in the woods.

But in the final moments before the guests arrive, she decides to find a "sit spot" and has the most magical moment of all.

To Be a Catcher (from the By Thistle By Thimble Series)

Joshua is considered one of the best baseball players of all time, with his face forever represented in the Baseball Hall of Fame. But his co-workers at the Cooperstown Dreams Park would never believe it. All they see is a nice old man who mops floors and serves lunch to the thousands of 11-year-old boys and girls who come to the park to play baseball every year. But Joshua likes it that way — for it is in his anonymity that he can teach a select few young players the most important skill in baseball.
