You'll love the Canon 50mm 1.8. Although its build is a bit low and plasticky, it's sharper and focuses faster than most of Canon's more expensive zooms. I love my "nifty fifty"!

I'm not a fan of zooms (all my Nikon lenses and Hasselblad lenses, of course, are fast primes), but the Canon came with the "kit" 28-90, which is OK as zooms go. But being a tradionalist, I just HAD to have a fast standard lens for the little Rebel. The 50mm should be arriving today, and it will give me two extra stops of range with the little built in flash--which I will rarely use, but when I need it, I need it.
