It’s so hard to fall asleep on Christmas Eve! Lucky for Cole and his sister, Rose, the Nighty Nights—created by Grammy winner Michael W. Smith and co-creator of VeggieTales Mike Nawrocki—have a special Christmas song to have them dreaming and sleeping in no time.
Merry Christmas, Nighty Night follows the familiar rhythm of the classic Clement Moore poem “The Night Before Christmas” to tell this gentle, musical, and heart-warming story that captures the wonder of Christmas Eve while helping little ones settle in for a cozy “Silent Night.”
Founded by Michael W. Smith, Nurturing StepsTM 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.
On the night before Christmas, Cole asked from his bed,
“May I wait by the tree for my presents instead?”
“No, Cole,” his mom answered, as she handed him Bear.
Then she kissed him goodnight and helped him say prayers.
