Sweetest Bedtime Reading with Nurturing Steps + Giveaway

Sharing is caring!

Zonderkidz is partnering with me for a giveaway!

Snuggling up to read at bedtime is always a favorite part of the day.

I grew up listening to Michael W. Smith’s music, so when I heard that he was writing children’s books I couldn’t wait to check them out!

Michael W. Smith teamed up with VeggieTales co-creator Mike Nawrocki to create the Nurturing Steps™ series. These books are created for infants and toddlers with the mission of providing families with books and music that will enhance young children’s journeys of hope and faith through storytelling and music.

The first Nurturing Steps™ book is Nighty Night and Good Night which tells  the story of how a stuffed animal band, called the Nighty Nights, help their friend Ben try to fall asleep.

Lamb, Bear, and Sleepy Puppy go on a adventure in which they realize that a lullaby might be just the thing to help Ben fall asleep.

The book includes a link so that readers can listen to Michael W. Smith sing the lullaby that helps put Ben to sleep.

The second Nurturing Steps™ book, Let’s Get Ready for Bed, in which the Nighty Nights get ready for bed and help their friend, the not-so-sleepy, Sleepy Puppy drift off to sleep. 

This book also includes a link to listen to the lullaby from the book, sung by Michael W. Smith.

What a great way to end the day with your young child. Snuggle in and read these adorable books, and then listen to the lullabies together as your child begins to drift off to sleep!

  17. I would be reading these with my 4 children. We do bedtime stories every night. ❤ We don’t have these one’s in our little collection so they would be an amazing gift for them. ❤ They are 9 years old, 6 years old, 5 years old and 4 years old so they are either reading or learning to read so these would work perfectly for them to practice.
