Merry Christmas, Nighty Night by Michael W. Smith

Merry Christmas, Nighty Night
Michael W. Smith
Juvenile Fiction / Christmas

It’s so hard to fall asleep on Christmas Eve! Lucky for Cole and his sister, Rose, the Nighty Nights have a special Christmas song to have them dreaming and sleeping in no time. This snuggly story is the one parents and grandparents turn to when their little ones are having trouble falling sleep.

Merry Christmas, Nighty Night follows the familiar rhythm of the classic Clement Moore poem “The Night Before Christmas” to tell this gentle, musical, heartwarming story that captures the wonder of Christmas Eve while helping little ones settle in for a cozy “Silent Night.”

This cute (and sleepy) adventure leads Cole and Rose to discover that when you’re having trouble falling asleep, a Christmas lullaby might just do the trick.

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.
