Reader:  The Apothecary by Maile Meloy
Maker: Potions lab or potion bottle for a little less mess

This is a great book series for anyone suffering from Harry Potter with drawls.  Janie, Pip and Benjamin perform magic through alchemy which is a great springboard to explore seemingly magical chemical reactions.  You could set-up a potions maker space using a kitchen science approach to your chemicals:

Invisible Ink from Lemons from Show Tell Share
Lemon Suds Eruptions from Kids Play Box

Want something less messy?  Students could make their own potion bottles as shown in Instructables.
