camera for 8-yr-old

I'm looking for some input on a camera for my 8-yr-old granddaughter. She is showing interested in photography, and I'd like to encourage that.

I don't want to spend an arm and a leg, but I want something decent. Maybe something that is shock-proof to so many feet, something that doesn't have too much of a shutter lag. The resolution doesn't have to be amazing, but I want it to be something that she can use for just messing around, as well as try things, when she wants grandma to explain something.

I'm asking, because there are so many on the market, and I'm confused. It's obviously going to be a point and shoot, as she would lose interest if she had to carry a heavy thing around all the time.

Thanks.
