Search Amazon for "Nurture: The team development manual for first-time line managers". The kindle version is currently only 99p but an app can be downloaded so it can be read on phones and tablets. Paper versions are available too.
It isn't the most in-depth book, but it is really easy to read and encourages people to think about their own circumstances. Information is given in bite-sized amounts so it is not daunting for someone that might be intimidated by a hefty tome.
*Disclaimer: The author is actually my company's Marketing Director so I am slightly bias, but it genuinely is a good read.
