Beginners' electronics books for kids? Answered

Any suggestions for titles? I'm a beginner myself, but would like simpler material for kids age 8-12 and simply haven't found any really good ones at the local library - but then again, I might not know a good one if I found it :P Thanks to all.

I can't say whether or not it's any good -- I've only just ordered it myself -- but I've found this DVD intended for kids: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B000GCG9U2/

You can also get it with $7.50 discount at http://www.marchdvd.com/.

As I said, I know nothing about it, but it might be worth a look.

I don't know about books, but there are electronics kits you can get with easy to follow books. The "101 projects" type things, either with breadboard or the spring type connectors. They intended for kids and young adults, it might be what you're looking for. I'm pretty sure Radio Shack sells one, but you can get a better deal and selection online.
