Hibernate's own site has a wealth of resource.

You don't need to learn old versions of the API before looking at the new.

I always found Java Persistence with Hibernate to be just a tad overwhelming for people new to Hibernate.

Check out my signature links for some real easy to follow Hibernate tutorial:

Getting Started with Hibernate: A Tutorial

If you like the flow of the tutorials, then pick up my book, Hibernate Made Easy. You'll find it to be a solid learning resource.
