"Lego Mindstorms NXT 23.0 The King's Treasure" is great for getting started with NXT. It provides 5 projects that you can build. Each comes with design considerations, limitations and sketches. Most importantly there are extremely detailed instructions (with pictures) to build and program the robot. The book also includes templates for you to design your own robots.
The projects are tied together with a cute adventure story. It's a short read which makes the book approachable by both children/parents and "standalone" adults looking to play with NXT.
Whether you are working with FLL (First Lego League) or not, these are great projects to get started or encourage creative ideas.
