Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

I think that just about any distro will work as long as you make sure you meet the LFS requirements.
Slackware comes with a bunch of development and compilation tools already installed, so it might be a good choice. With many of the others, you have to install kernel headers and other elements needed to compile from sources; Slackware includes them by default.
Is there any other distros that come with every thing else need will probably use slakeware but just want to know all my choises
Most distros will come with everything you need, but depending on how you install them the various tools may or may not already be on your system at the end of the installation process. However, if you are up to doing an LFS build presumably you are capable of installing packages on the build system.
