In 2019, Spike Productions, an established web-video company since 2002, launched the Basketful Relief Project (BRP) to write and publish beautiful children’s stories to support hunger relief programs here at home and abroad. With the purchase of a BRP book, Spike Productions currently donates ten percent of each purchase to reputable organizations fighting hunger. The goal however, is to increase this percent amount as more books sell.
We hope these books not only grace your coffee table as classics, but inspire your young reader to engage in them time and again.
The BRP mission really is to help feed both young tummies and minds.

Comment on the BRP children’s story: Get to Bed!
5.0 out of 5 stars A Barnyard Version of “Good Night Moon” Reviewed in the United States on July 7, 2020
I recommend “Get to Bed” by Catherine Ann Russell for the way its barnyard update on the message of “Goodnight Moon” (Harper) — the 1947 childrens’ bedtime classic by Margaret Wise Brown.
Like many kids, the domestic animals and wildlife featured in this story take their time settling down. They dawdle over dinner and procrastinate getting to their resting and nesting places.
The book — with lovely watercolor illustrations by Morgan Grace Quist — shows young readers another version of how nature winds down with help from the boy narrating the story.
