Perhaps you should do some research into the different types of mount and reflector or main objective diameters, because your own informed judgement will always help you better to your final decision. But if you only want a glimpse then perhaps a pair of binoculars might be best

Answer:
If he/she is interested in it, then yes. My 5 year old liked looking at stars for about a month, but the novelty wore off. I still enjoy seeing Jupiter's moons and Saturn's ring. $79 may or may not be a lot of money depending on who you are, but for that amount you'll have a better quality telescope than Galileo.

This much you can probably do with a bit of effort aiming a point-and-shoot or cellphone camera into the eyepiece and playing around until you get the spacing just right. There are brackets to make this a bit more repeatable, but it still isn't easy.
Some folks have uploaded example photos to the "product images" section here on Amazon. Note that many of these have been made using the neximage, which is a camera that goes in place of the eyepiece and works like a bit like webcam. That's another way, and makes it much easier, but it is a specialized device and webcam-type resolution.
Deep-space objects (nebulas, galaxies, etc) will be near impossible without significant upgrades.
It should be noted that in general taking pictures through a telescope is difficult. see less
