Madeline L'Engle's A Wrinkle In Time series was my favorite.
Laura Ingalls Wilder was also.
I read both series to my own children and they have the books for their children when they are a little older.
A.A. Milne - the writer of the Winnie the Pooh stories. Not to be confused with what Disney did to Winnie the Pooh when they bought the rights to the character.

A.A. Milne and JRR Tolkien for the older kids
