I found Freida Carson's Histotechnology; a Self Instructional Text very 
useful.  It is easy to read and understand, and it comes with a workbook. 
Sheehan and Hrapchak's Theory aand Practice of Histotechnology is 
another wonderful resource... a little more in depth.  Have her also get 
an atlas of anatomy of what ever species you deal with most often.  Or 
even an anatomy coloring book (Kapit and Elson is the one I have).
Best of luck,
