Jennifer Garner loves reading with her kids.

The 'Butter' actress has daughters Violet, seven and Seraphina, four, and 14-month-old son Samuel with husband Ben Affleck and says the family enjoy nothing more than to sit down together with a good book.

She told People magazine: ''We love 'A Series Of Unfortunate Events' by Lemony Snicket. My daughter Violet is so into the series, she talks about the Baudelaire kids like they're part of our family. It's a blast.''

Jennifer recently admitted her children love seeing her dressed up for red carpet events because they think she looks ''like a princess''.

She said: ''I'm lucky I can have moments when my hair and make-up are done and I'm in something fancy. My kids say 'Wow, You look like a princess.' They love a sparkly dress.''

Jennifer insists she is happy with her appearance, because she believes ''less is more''.

The former 'Alias' star is keen to teach her daughters about inner beauty.

She said: ''I want my kids to know they're pretty on the inside no matter what they hear.''
