I retired from a career as a programmer, systems analyst, and SQL Server developer a couple years ago, but had very little experience with C#. Since there is so much info on programming available on the web (thank you Code Project and Stack Overflow), I almost never buy a book on programming. However, I did buy this one and found it valuable:

Head First C# by Andrew Stellman and Jennifer Greene (Don't know them, have nothing to gain by this plug). I have the 4th Ed, there's a 5th coming out in August. I got the PDF version for the publisher's site, but print and kindle are available at Amazon.

After information is presented, they use different kinds of non-conventional exercises designed to help understanding and recall. There are various places on the web where you can preview some chapters and see how they do it.

It is aimed at young programmers just coming up, rather than old farts like me, and may appeal to your granddaughter.
