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.

Qimo and Doudou are both designed for children from 3 to 10.
Doudou comes as a live CD with no access to the hard drive (for obvious safety reasons). It can be installed, but that requires downloading an installer (again for safety) and it is not intended to double boot. Hardware support is a bit weak at present. Some of the language needs revising (it's translated from French): e.g. "compose an image" should be "make a picture". DansGuardian is installed and set up with very tough restrictions to control internet access.
Qimo is a little more conventional, and the language is better. The big problem with Qimo is that it has no parental controls set (at least, not when I last tried it). They recommend DansGuardian, and installing that is no task for the faint-hearted.
Distribution: RHEL, CentOS, Debian, Oracle Solaris 10
Can I install ubuntu studio components in ubuntu?
Yes you can.
Go to System/Administration/Synaptic Package Manager and look for "ununtustudio" packages. You can install audio, video and other studio packages without having to have the complete Studio OS. You will not have the real time kernel but any apps or other features are available.
Distribution: Debian Wheezy, Jessie, Sid/Experimental, playing with LFS.

So others who have the same question as your OP can get the answer they want without posting a thread of their own. Those who want to know if you can install Ubuntustudio on normal Ubuntu systems wouldn't try and look at a thread about Linux for kids.
