Aaron loves the corner where he lives. Right next to his house is his dad’s shop, Cincy Tire and Wheel. His dad can change a tire faster than Aaron can say his own name! And Aaron is always ready to help move old tires to his Tire Mountain. But Aaron’s mom is tired of living in the city. She wants to move someplace where Aaron will have room to run and play. Aaron comes up with a great way to convince his mom that there is plenty of space to play right here on their corner. This book celebrates community and urban diversity.
