Brent Jensen, founder of the Sir Owen, The Little Free Library  shared his Mother's Day book picks. The library is located in a restored British phone booth situated in a South Jordan neighborhood. Anyone is welcome to come and check out a book. To find out more on the library go here.

"Is Mommy?" words by Victoria Chang, pictures by Marla Frazee. Funny, slightly irreverent children's picture book written from a toddler's perspective and showing that even if mommy is mean, boring, or messy at times, we love her anyway.

"Notorious RBG: The Life and Times of Ruth Bader Ginsburg", by Irin Carmon and Shana Knizhnik. Strong moms want to raise strong kids, and the biography of this Supreme Court justice is full of stories, facts, tidbits, and anecdotes to make this wonderful role model accessible to us all.

"Lilac Girls" by Martha Hall Kelly. Historical fiction weaving together the stories of three women during World War II and their quest for love, freedom, and second chances. Perfect for the mommy looking to unwind at the end of the day.

"Libraries Around the World Coloring Book" by Lacey Losh. 'Grown Up' coloring book featuring coloring pages of 50 different Little Free Libraries from around the world, with a location, information, and stories about each one. All mommies need to restore their calm at times; why not do it by coloring in the charm and whimsy of a Little Free Library? ( Sir Owen is featured as library no. 48 ).
