A camera for my daughter: any recommendations?

Hello everyone. I'm an APSC user.  But I've noticed that some MFTs are really affordable, and may make a nice kit for my daughter, to learn photography.

So I'm asking: is the main difference between Olympus, and Panasonic, that Olympus has in-body image stabilization, and Panasonic doesn't on any of it's models (placing it only in lenses instead)?

Also, which cameras, from both manufacturers, offer the most manual controls and 16mp (but excluding the very large MFT cameras and excluding the very expensive ones)?

Just trying to figure out what our best bet is.  Thanks in advance.
