If we're on the subject of Ruby and Scheme (which are both, in their
own ways, very good languages to start learning to program), depending
what your son's age is it might be better to start with “The Little
Schemer” (paperback version: [1] and an online sampler [2]), and “R's
Poignant Guide to Ruby” [3] which is IMO an excellent work of art as
well as it's a good introduction to Ruby.
