If they ever release it, this book might be good:

http://www.amazon.com/Hello-World-Computer-Programming-Beginners/dp/1933988495/ref=pd_bbs_sr_1?ie=UTF8&s=books&qid=1239129498&sr=8-1

Zelle's Python Programming book is pretty good (and was written by a
college professor) and I've heard good things about ORielly's Learning
Python by Lutz.
