    I'm not sure what textbooks would be quite good for basics, but make flash cards! You can buy them if you really wanted to but you can just make them on some card or thick paper. Just write the kanji on the one side, and the meaning on the other. Great way to learn and then even if you can't read the book you can still check them over quickly.

    Doing it with stuff like Numbers, the time, basic questions like "What is your name" etc is also good.

    Really, just about any textbook would do. There's no one absolutely good book on learning kanji.

    Like, some books incorporate pictures and fun activities and teach at a slowed-down pace, while others just provide the necessary information and try to present as much as possible in the fewest number of pages.

    If your friend is fine with just words and information with no pictures, then maybe even kanji flashcards?

    This is the book I'm using but it mostly teaches vocabulary and grammar. It's in hiragana and katakana so it's easy for us foreigners/people who can't read kanji to understand. It is also used at universities (University of Queensland, Australia, to be precise). I was recommended this book by an acquaintance who is living in and is a native japanese. The title is ''Japanese for Busy People Kana Version'' By Ajalt. It has volumes 1-3 or so. They're about 30 USD each ($15-$20 for the book itself, and $10-$15 for the shipment fee). I bought mine at amazon. Could've been cheaper at ebay but I wanted mine brand new xD
    I also suggest you buy a dictionary English - Japanese. They're a bit expensive, but it really helps a lot (in my case, it sure did).
    The way I learned kanji was --> Since the said book has a vocab list for each chapter (not volume, chapter), I just copied the romaji and english translation to another exercise book and then looked up the kanji in a website (http://japanese.reader.bz/) , in my dictionary, and in Microsoft words just to make sure they're right or not (also it's easier to zoom in to 200-300% in case the kanji in the dictionary and website is too small, you know how they look so ''scrunched'' up if they're too small). Since your friend won't have computer access, then the best way would be the dictionary but I can't guarantee he'll be able to see the kanji character perfectly since dictionaries are so small.

    Hope that helps. Good luck!! =)
