Zonderkidz is partnering with me for a giveaway.
Do you know Christian recording artist Michael W. Smith and Veggie Tales co-creator Mike Nawrocki? These two have teamed up to write a new picture book series called Nurturing Steps™ for ages 0 – 4 published by Zonderkidz. The goal of the books and accompanying music is to enliven a young child’s journey with hope and faith through song and storytelling. I’m giving away the first two picture books in the series plus a blue-tooth enabled Sight & Sound sleep soother. Together they make the ultimate sleep-tight prize pack!
Zonderkidz Nurturing Steps Book & Sleep Soother Giveaway
Book 1: Nighty Night and Good Night
In this first book, Ben says his prayers and tries to go to sleep. But he’s having trouble. He asks the stuffed animal band the Nighty Nights for help. They give him many ideas like counting sheep, fluffing his pillow, and yawning. That’s when the NIghty Nights sing him a lullaby: “Lay down, sweet child, and go to sleep. / The Lord be with you and give you his peace. / Lay down, sweet child, and go to sleep. / The Lord be with you tonight.” Ben slowly drifts off to sleep with his good friends snuggled near. This book includes a link that allows readers to listen to Michael W. Smith sing the same lullaby that helps put Ben to sleep. The cover of Nighty Night and Good Night shows the Nighty Nights with the book title in shiny foil. Gentle, warm illustrations throughout.
Book 2: Let’s Get Ready for Bed
Eddy the bear and Lamby the sheep watch their friend Puppy getting ready for bed. First, he makes a huge mess in the bathtub as he washes jelly donuts off his face. Next, he puts on his fuzzy pjs and brushes his teeth then prays and reads a book. But why is Puppy still awake? He needs a song! His friends will sing him a rock-a-bye song. Listen to the lullaby at Nurturingsteps.com/readyforbed.
