We love books — the smell, the feel, the way the paper sounds when you turn the page, but now that we’re the parents of small children, our appreciation has grown much deeper. Unlike electronic entertainment — which seems to be a bewitching source of chaos for little ones — reading brings a level of peace and calm nothing else can touch. With that in mind, we’re always on the lookout for ways to engage our family in the joy of reading, and we’ve found 15 great ways to do that this summer, including everything from library activities, to professional spoken-word performances, to a class on the book-sharing app GoodReads. Here’s our countdown to a high-flying summer of literary fun.

Zoo to You
It’s hard to muster up courage for the zoo when it’s 110 degrees in the shade, but fear not — the Phoenix Zoo is coming to Chandler’s Sunset Library with a free, hands-on educational presentation with live animals. Ticket prices for similar programs at the zoo can run as high as $25 a person, making this event — designed for kids 5 and older — a real bargain.

The library is open from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Saturday, but families are limited to six tickets per household, so if you need several tickets, plan on picking them up Saturday morning — there’s a good chance tickets will be “sold out” by the end of the day.
