Join the Nighty Nights in Nighty Night and Good Night by Michael W. Smith and Mike Nawrocki.

This book is written by Grammy Award-winning recording artist Michael W. Smith and the co-creator of VeggieTales. This simple story follows Ben, who is trying to go to sleep, but just isn't tired. The gang of the Nighty Nights, made up of Lamby, Bear, and Sleepy Puppy try to help Ben get tired so he can sleep.

I have to say, I expected more from this book, particularly in the illustrations knowing that the co-creator of VeggieTales was part of this story. Don't get me wrong, the characters were kinda cute, but they weren't as warm and cuddly as VeggieTales. I still think kids will enjoy the illustrations, but I would have liked a little more.

I can see how this would be a nice story to read before bed. I felt it making me a little tired reading it. I would have liked more of a rhyming flow to the story. I think that would have made it the perfect bedtime story. Overall, this was a nice book to read before bed. For me, it wasn't anything special or a book that will become a before bed routine, but it was nice for the occasional read.
