As the discussion around this grows (and hopefully it will), I will collate the suggestions into one list that I will post. I'm going to start off with a book that I used today. I was introducing the elements and principles of visual design and the book, "Picture This: How Pictures Work" by Molly Bang filled the bill perfectly. For one review and description of the book, see Review of Picture This This book has a ton of potential for teaching young people about how pictures are constructed and composed. Fun, engaging and informative.
