What makes magnets work?

My second grader is doing a presentation on magnets. He's read books and can tell you all sorts of cool things about magnets, which is probably fine for second grade. But the really interesting question is not "what do they do?", but "why do they do it?" Can anyone explain how magnets work at a level second graders might understand?
