Michael W. Smith Creates New Children’s Series, “Nurturing Steps”

GRAMMY award winning and multi-platinum artist Michael W. Smith has teamed up with the co-creator of the incredibly popular kids show VeggieTales, Mike Nawrocki, to create a new infant and children’s series called “Nurturing Steps.”
On May 8th, in partnership with Zonderkidz (HarperCollins Christian Publishing) Michael will release his first book “Nighty Night and Good Night,” a charming tale about a band of animals who are called upon to help their friend Ben. Michael also recorded an album of lullabies – featuring both enchanting hits and original songs – that will be released on May 4th through The Fuel Music in conjunction with Michael’s new children’s book.
This is a special project for Michael who, in the midst of hectic recording and touring schedules, has always made time for his 5 children and 14 grandchildren to ensure he treasures all of life’s special moments. “Nurturing Steps” is not only a gift to his family, but a project aimed at providing parents and grandparents with music and books to enliven a young child’s journey, and offer stories and songs that will help shape the faith of a new generation.
“There is something sacred about nighttime,” says Michael. “I remember my mom putting me to bed, and all of my kids remember me reading to them. There’s something pretty special as you end the day and wind things down together. I believe this has something to do with the way we turn out in life.”
Michael’s next book release is set for October 2018.
