Take a look at:

	"How to Design Programs: An Introduction to Programming and Computing"
	Felleisen, Findler, Flatt, Krishnamurthi (Rice University)

This is a text intended for high school students, as part of Rice's
"TeachScheme!" project <URL:>.
The book is not available in a dead trees version yet [next year, from
MIT Press], but the whole thing's readable online now. [You might suggest
to your kid skipping over or skimming the Preface and the teacher's notes
at the beginning of each section if they get too deep, though personally I
think there's a lot of useful stuff in there, too.]
