This is not the best book I've ever read, and I may donate it to the school.The rancher goes to his "sleepy" town for excitement - and wow, what an exciting day he has! Why, there's a checker game that just made a king, and it only took two weeks! The whole town turned out to see a turtle cross the road!Meanwhile, his wife "misses everything" because she's stuck at home while more and more farm animals give birth and boring stuff like lottery tickets and oil wells happen. Shucks.There's not much to it, but it is pretty funny the first few times. I think it'll get more use in a classroom than in a fairly small family, though.

Thank God for Reading Rainbow! My kids and I fell in love with this book years ago when we heard Hoyt Axton reading it. Our copy is loved to pieces, but I still love to pull it out to read to folks who don't know this hilarious story of Rancher Hicks and what happened the day he went to town, leaving Elna behind to dig potatoes..

I've Loved this book ever since I was five, and after all of these years, I still laugh on just about every page. The first time I'd ever heard it was on Reading Rainbow. It's about a man who is trying to have fun, and thinks he has an exciting day, But Meanwhile back at the ranch his wife is having an even better more hilareous day.

Just the other month, my son, came home from his school to announce that he had a new favorite book.....and could he get it for Christmas? His school had invited the author to visit and before she was to arrive his class had listened to a teacher read this book. It was 'Meanwhile Back at the Ranch' He is now in 5th grade and said he would feel 'funny' about getting such a book since he thinks this book is for younger readers...I said, 'Nonsense!' If you love a book and it means something to can certainly claim it to be a book you want to have, to read, to share and to matter how old you are! So, Today I am going to purchase it...and see that my son gets it on Christmas Day. The story has some wild and humorous situations, clever action, is beautifully illustrated and can help a child to enjoy and appreciate the things in life that he or she already has.
