As a relative Python and programming newbie myself, I'd say you should
check out various links at:
The gentle introduction that I started with is:
How to Think Like a Computer Scientist
Allen Downey's open source textbook has a Python version, written with
Jeff Elkner. It's also available in book form.
It is aimed at high-school students and is quite clear, but
appropriately low in its pitch.
After that, I found Lutz and Ascher's Learning Python quite helpful.
