Have you played Round One of the Season 3 #GCP Matching Game yet? 

Last chance; Answers are below!  

As you know, many of my Season 3 guests played the #GCP Bonus Round and shared some of their favorite poems, quotes and children’s books.  A few weeks ago I posted a Matching Game and asked you to match this season’s guests with their correct favorites. (If you haven’t tried the Matching Game yet, STOP HERE, go back to the previous post and try it!).  Ready to check your answers?  Scroll down to see how well you did in the first matchup.

And please share some poems, quotes and children’s books that have moved and influenced YOU in your childhood, adulthood and/or parenthood!
