Award-winning musician-singer, best-selling author, and acclaimed actor Michael W. Smith launches Nurturing Steps™ May 4 and 8. This new infant and toddler series has a simple mission: to provide 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 release through The Fuel Music and Zonderkidz™, respectfully. These projects also mark the first-ever children’s album and book by Michael, each crafted in collaboration with renowned VeggieTales co-creator Mike Nawrocki. The book is available now to preorder through NurturingSteps.com or favorite online retailers.
“One of the greatest joys of my life is being a parent and a grandparent,” says Michael, the father of five, who is called “G-Daddy” by his 14 grandkids. “I want to serve the next generation well. That’s why I created Nurturing Steps, to provide stories and songs that will help shape the faith of our newest generation.”
“I have wonderful memories of reading, singing, and praying with my children before bed,” says Nawrocki. “It can be a sacred time with our little ones, and I’m thrilled to be able to partner with Michael to create stories that parents and grandparents can use to help pass important values on to their children and grandchildren.”
Following the release of Lullaby and Nighty Night and Good Night, additional Nurturing Steps titles releasing this fall will be announced.
