Books where the kids can sense magic that the adults can't

I'm looking for books where the kids can see/experience some sort of magic that most/all adults can't - specifically because they are kids and have more imagination (or faith that the magic exists, or something along those lines). For instance, The Polar Express. (Only the kids can hear the sleigh bell, and maybe a few adults that still believe.) Thanks to anyone who can help!  :)

I believe this was the idea behind the Edward Eager books (Half Magic, Seven Day Magic, etc.). It's been a long time since I read those, but that's how I remember it.

Also, as the kids in the Narnia series got older, they lost the ability to go back.

Fablehaven had adults in it that saw magic but most adults couldn't. And it's a fantastic series!

Hmmm....  In The Giver isn't it only a child who can see colors?

This may not be quite the same thing, but in the Narnia books, the children eventually "age out," and become too old to return.
