    Small basic is where I started and its awesome instruction. I did it when I was 11 and loved it. http://smallbasic.com/ Definitely recommend that!

    Scratch from MIT is a great resource for getting experience with the principles of programming in a fun way: http://scratch.mit.edu/

    I have seen some reviews recently of this one for learning javascript http://www.crunchzilla.com/code-monster My 8yr old started it the other day and liked it. It held her attention for about an hour and I think I can get her to continue.
