Jenna Bush Hager's daughters know the importance of a good beach read!

The Today co-host, 42, shared a sweet photo on her Instagram Story Wednesday of her daughter Mila, 10 enjoying a good read while hanging out with a friend in beach chairs on the sand.

Both girls were reading Jenny Han’s The Summer I Turned Pretty, which was adapted into an Amazon Prime series last summer.

The mom of three shared what Mila and younger sister Poppy, 8, have been into reading lately back in November as she chatted with PEOPLE for a special event at P.S. 108K The Sal Abbracciamento School in Brooklyn, New York, to unveil its first Little Yellow Library.

"Mila is reading a lot of chapter books. She read a book called Save Me a Seat by Sarah Weeks and she loved it. She's really into those books that teach are sort of driving home empathy. She likes to feel when she reads, which is something I also really like. So I'm just trying to help guide her to books that are like that," the proud mom told PEOPLE at the time.

"She finished the whole Harry Potter series, so she's kind of done with fantasy and wizards for now and is really more into grounded fiction. I actually just went to the library with her and helped her pick out a lot more like that."

As for Poppy, "she's just started reading chapter books and graphic novels on her own, so she's reading through the whole Baby-Sitter's Club graphic novel series,” she explained.

“They're so good because they take a series that we were obsessed with growing up and updated it a little bit and made it more manageable to get into as an earlier reader."

When it comes to her little guy, 4½-year-old Hal, Bush Hager said he loves to read with her but doesn’t always make it easy.

"He plays this really fun game, because he knows I love the books that are basically about how much a mom loves their child, the sweet ones that are more for parents than they are for kids. So he's always like, 'Guess what we're gonna read tonight, Mommy?' And then he'll pick and it sort of depends on his mood, if he wants to terrorize me or not," she laughed.

"Sometimes he's like, 'We're gonna read On the Night You Were Born, Mommy!' and then sometimes he'll sort of dangle it over me and then say, 'Not tonight, Mommy!' which is hilarious and it works every time."
