You should read this in the order that they were written (this being the 6th) rather than chronologically by story, this being the first. It answers some questions you may have about the origins of Narnia and some of its inhabitants, but it would destroy some of the wonder and curousity someone may have about Narnia and the events surrounding it.

Have you ever wondered where you can get a magical wardrobe? Or why the Witch is so powerful? How about how a lamppost came to be in the middle of the wilderness? Wonder no more! The Magician's Nephew will answer all these questions and more.
An engaging prequel to an all ready detailed and rich series, this book offers insights on the nature of magic in the world of Narnia, as well as it's very creation and how humanity is a part of that plan.

This is in The Chronicles Of Narnia series. Very entertaining children's book with a lot of religious undertones.
