Just when you thought that bedtime could not get any better, there are some great new books for you to read to your kids before bed to help them make the transition easily.
Multi-Platinum, three-time Grammy® Award winning artist Michael W. Smith launches Nurturing Steps™, a new infant and toddler series with a simple mission to offer parents and grandparents with music and books to enliven a young child’s journey with hope and faith through song and storytelling. The first new album, Lullaby, and book, Nighty Night and Good Night, from Nurturing Steps released on May 4thand May 8th, 2018.
Some of you know Michael W. Smith for his Christian music. He has gotten together with VeggieTales co-creator Mike Nawrocki to write some amazing stories for infants and toddlers. We all know that reading a bedtime story is a tradition in many homes, one that we enjoy here as well. There is nothing better than snuggling down with your little one and taking some time together to read a book.
The Nurturing Steps books are specifically geared toward going to sleep, I loved that fact about these books. The first book Let’s Get Ready for Bed, is a cute little story about all the things done before going to bed, from bath time to prayers, all the way to reading a bedtime story.
This is a fabulous book, with great illustrations that are of muted colors to keep calm to the whole theme, it talks about moving from daytime to bedtime and what needs to get done.
The first book in the Nurturing Steps Series is Nighty, Night and Goodnight, this is about Ben who has a hard time going to sleep and needs some help from the Nighty Nights to get some rest. Cute and upbeat, also shows how kids can deal with having a rough go at settling down at night.
These books are amazing children’s books that will have your kids begging nightly for you to read to them again and again. They are well made, and the stories capture their attention while teaching them life skills at the same time. It is so important to take the time to show kids what you want them to know, not just what the world out there wants them to believe.
Nurturing Steps would also make a great gift for your friends and family. I am sure all of them would love to read and share these books with the kids in their lives.
