Subsequent albums earned slots among Billboard's chart-toppers in the Classical, Country, and Independent Album categories. The Tenors' rockin' rendition of "Ruckus on the Ranch" is a perfect showcase for their lively, tuneful, sing-alongs.Brian Fitzgerald: A graduate of Ireland's National College of Art and Design, Brian Fitzgerald's art can also be found in advertising, magazines, newspapers, greeting cards, and even on cereal boxes!

The two horses Ruby and Wyatt the running wild and first the farmer starts chasing after them, then the cowgirl follows and soon all the farm animals join in, too. The chase is on until horse Ruby suddenly stops and now all the others come to a halt, too. Exhausted they all have a rest, but then Wyatt gets stung by a bumble bee and the whole chase starts anew.
The whole book is cheerful silly fun, with colourful illustrations and a text, which comes with lots of animal sounds (grunt, snort, etc.) and repetitive wording which young children will hugely enjoy.
The story has been turned into a song by the Texas Tenors and there exist different varieties of it (with all the animal noises in the background), which are either availabe on Amazon as mp3 (but cost extra) or can be listened to for free on You Tube.
I like the idea to have book and song at the same time. It encourages the kids to listen to the music and sing-a-long with it and at the same time, they are able to read the written text in the book as well. That way, they will engage much more with the story and remember better what they've just read. A perfect and fun idea for young ones to learn their first farm animals.
