The only one I've read is _The Wednesday Witch_. I just finished reading it
to my girls, who are almost-6 and 4 years old. Reading level is the only
way that the age difference between them shows up: Aerin is just slightly
too young to sit still for certain books, while Teleri sucks up everything.
But when I started _Wednesday Witch_ I told Aerin she didn't have to sit
with us, and she said she would play with a toy nearby and maybe listen. It
only took a few chapters for her to be cuddled up with us, listening as
avidly as her big sister. Having read other books to them which I consider
to be on a slightly lower reading level (particularly John Peterson's
"Littles" books) and losing Aerin's attention with those, I have to conclude
that there's something in the subject matter and in the way she tells her
story that is just captivating.
