A great phonics/reading book is Teach Your Child To Read In 100 Easy Lessons. It does exactly what the title promises to do. If she's the workbook kind of kid, you might look for the MCP phonics series. They are inexpensive, and you don't necessarily need the teacher's manuals unless you want all the extra activities. A beka is another popular one.

You might also look for the Sound Beginnings program for when she is older- I think that is 2nd-3rd grade, but it is VERY thorough. From there she could go on to The Writing Road to Reading. That one is difficult for the parent to get through, but there are books written to help break it down into daily lesson plans. I would guess that is around 3rd-4th grade and on up.
