Can somebody reccommend a good text book for teaching C++ to high school students?

Check out's list of programming books. I used their series to learn JavaScript, Java, Adv. VB. As far as I know, their C books are written by the Java Authors so they should be great. They have a lot of examples and screenshots in their series which really help beginners. There is also a CD included with the teachers edition and power point docs for instruction.
