Children’s Corner — Nighty Night and Good Night

9 May

Nighty Night and Good Night is the first book in a series of bedtime books by multiple Grammy and Dove Award-winning recording artist Michael W. Smith and VeggieTales co-creator Mike Nawrocki. In Nighty Night and Good Night, the stuffed animal band the Nighty Nights are called upon to help their friend Ben try to fall to sleep. This cute and sleepy adventure leads Lamby, Bear, and Sleepy Puppy to discover that a classic lullaby might just do the trick.

This book includes a link that allows readers to listen to Michael W. Smith sing the same lullaby that helps put Ben to sleep.

Founded by Michael W. Smith, Nurturing Steps is an infant and toddler series of children’s music and books with a simple mission to enliven a child’s journey with hope and faith through music and storytelling.

 

Michael W. Smith is an American musician, who has charted in both contemporary Christian and mainstream charts. He has also starred in 2 films and published 13 books including This is Your Time, which he worked with Christian author Gary Thomas to write.

 

My Impressions:

Dove Award winner and grandfather Michael W. Smith has a new venture — Nurturing Steps. The debut book in this series of music and books for infants and toddlers, Nighty Night And Good Night, is an adorable book that will become a favorite night time addition for your family. Targeted towards preschoolers, the book features young Ben and his 3 stuffed animals as he searches for a way to go to sleep. The four friends try their hardest to get Ben in a sleepy state of mind, but it is only after a lullaby that Ben indeed falls asleep. The soft words and pastel illustrations are perfect for drawing your child into the quiet of bedtime while reinforcing the care that God has for His children (the book begins and ends with prayer). The book also includes a link to the Smith’s original lullaby so you can combine reading time with music. Nighty Night And Good Night will be a wonderful addition to your family library.
