    Kodak has an old classic called "How to take Good Pictures" that is a great simple book.

    But mostly, getting the kid out and having him take lots of photographs is the best way!

    Hello
    Together with a book may I suggest this on-line camera simulator
    http://www.photonhead.com/simcam/
    very vivid examples of combinations of speed & aperture, camera shake artifacts vs out-of-focus shots, etc
    Great (not only) for beginners
    Regards
    Joao

    I suggest the first edition of "The Photographer's Handbook". A beginning photographer can spend countless hours roaming through its' pages.

    Cheers

    The Photography Bible by Daniel Lezano.

    I recently bought this book for my 11 year old daughter. I'm very impressed with it. It covers both traditional and digital photography. Its not too heavy reading and has loads of colour pictures throughout.

    Leica R7, 50/2 Summicron, 90/2.8 Elmarit, 180/3.4 Apo-Telyt-R
    I'm not going digital... It's not photography, its computing!

    Greetings Jim, i dialed up the site that BlueWind suggested, it is an excellant page for a beginner like me and even for a 11 year old to understand, it is easy to understand and read because it shows you the differences of how the camera works.
    Remember one thing Jim, it is like taking a young boy or girl fishing for the first, make it fun for them, not boring because they will lose interest right away. Good luck.
    Mike.

    Hey, Jim!
    As much as I love reading, I have so much more actual fun by just going out there in "the wild blue yonder" taking 'pitchers'. And I'm 48 years old!!!! Just get the boy out and about.

    Of the dozens of photography books I have aquired over the years, I find one of the best to be Ray Koken's "Better Pictures Through Good Composition". I bought my first copy directly from Mr. Koken in the late sixties for $1.00. They are now available from Swanland's Camera, 527 F Street, Eureka, CA. 95501. Tel. 707-442-4522 for $4.95 each. This little 40 or so page booklet is easily read and understood by young folks. I bought a few of these for our photography club and recently.
