I'm partial to How to Design Programs as a beginner's textbook:


because it emphasizes a systematic approach to designing programs.
Basically, it's a Polya's "How to Solve It" for programmers, with an
expanded treatment on how data structures inform the shape of the
functions that work on that data.
