Nothing beats a good book at bedtime! We asked celeb moms including Julie Bowen, Jenna Dewan Tatum, and Jessica Alba to share their favorite kids' reads for lights-out. See their picks below, and add your own in the comments!

The Adventures of Captain Underpants by Dav Pilkey

"My oldest son really likes Captain Underpants," says Modern Family actress Bowen, mom to Oliver, 8, and twins John and Gustav, 6. "He's into anything with attacking toilets. It's that kind of boy humor. I could use a girl…A female dog would be helpful in my house!"

Beezus and Ramona by Beverly Cleary

"We just finished Beezus and Ramona," says Jessica Alba, who has two daughters, Honor, 7, and Haven, 4. "Honor will say, 'Haven's Beezus and I'm Ramona — she's always getting in trouble and doing crazy things!'"

Journey by Aaron Becker

"Journey by Aaron Becker is an incredible book of illustrations," Constance Zimmer, mom to 7-year-old Colette, tells Us. "Kids are supposed to make the journey themselves, so every time we look at it, it's a new story."

Tina Tumbles by Danielle Soucy Mills

"Tina Tumbles is Everly's favorite book," Jenna Dewan Tatum says of her little girl, 2, with husband Channing Tatum. "She does cartwheels, and we go to a baby gymnastics class. I got her to wear a leotard because Tina wears one!"
