The Books of Elsewhere by Jacqueline West

The premise for this series is interesting: what if paintings were portholes to other places and times?  In the first book, Olive moves into a strange house and finds that a pair of spectacles lets her enter the paintings and visit the people there.  Many of them are frightened of one of the inhabitants and Olive soon learns that some of these people cannot be trusted.

This series is recommended for fifth grade on up, but I have some fourth graders who are ready right now.
