It is probably out of print nowadays but Garfunkle's "Star-hopping" published by CUP is an unfortunately rarely mentioned quality guide.
If she is a reader that is. It's in the style of needing to be read, though illustrated, and not in the modern style of short and suite with "boxes" as asides style books have nowadays, trying to emulate a pithy webpage or chat thread with the boxes like oulinked webpages.
However, given it is 60mm, and worse a 60mm reflector as opposed to refractor, and will most likely have a lightweight altaz mount that makes a wobbling jelly look rigid, you're going to have to go visit, which if you live states' away will mean a week or so during a good season for dark of the moon. Here in the UK "Polaroid" means made in China, however, not in the context of "what isn't?", but in the context of they now buy out brand names such that many trusted good old brand names are no longer actually made by those companies or even based on their last designs or patents, and are just using the name, so here you get tellies, dvd players, and even tellies that are smart, biggish, dvd and recording, and HD all for barely over £250 pound, impossibly capable of being good at that price, plus stuff like that going cheap that's too good to be true. I mean, unless you've typoed, who makes a 60mm _reflector_! Smallest I've heard of before is 3", but mostly the base is 4" (75mm and 100mm).
She's barely going to be able to make out Jupiter's main belts, I seriously doubt GRS, though she'll see the moons, and Saturn's rings will be visible this year, probably, just, but they are on the close.
So, pleiades, hyades, colourful naked eye double stars like Albireo (I assume the finder is either poor or worse red dot or possibly even laser free), the Orion Nebula, M31 is probably just giong to be a barely discernible splob, brighter Messier Open Clusters, especially ones with blue stars but also the odd red one, say M52.
This may sound veering off topic, but such a basic book as she would need for that scope may be too little kid-like and leave her intelligence insulted. Most Messier marathon books will have many objects if not beyond her capabilities at least somewhat unrewarding at the eyepiece.
On the other hand, if you get her one of the many books recommended above you end up disappointed by it all and the scope she has been given.
She can learn the constellations, maybe a good constellation book, whilst you sieve together a target list of the brightest and best objects (you could always check them out in your finderscope if you have an 8x one) and find a way to visit near some dark of the Moon to show her a few objects, that is if you can manage to point the flimsy thing.
This new comet is a bit close, but she will have heard of it. Unfortunately it will disappoint many as the dust tail in somewhat bland in shape, short, fat and stubby, and the nice long ion tail people keep showing us is only going to be easy for small scopes in very dark skies, or in stacked imaging.
Reminds me of my last manager, she called training first time workers a matter of "managing expectations", bringing dunderheads up to scratch a "training issue", and the economy going down the pan (again!) a "challenge", never in false bravado, always laconically and fatalistically. This is going to be the same here, and even though your granddaughter is intelligent there is still going to be a training issue as this scope is going to be hard to use! It is going to make my first telescope, a 60mm tasco refractor on a wobbly aluminium altaz mount, seem positively deluxe by comparision. I was roughly the same age when I got that and it can be a surprise what you can see, but little detail.
PS in EDIT : but looking at you number of posts and status you likely know all this, so sorry for preaching to the converted
