Re: SL1 vs EOS M for my daughter

First, my vote is for the SL1. I went through something similar earlier this month. My wife finally decided that she is interested in photography and wanted her own camera. I have a Panasonic ZS7 and FZ200 and Canon S5IS, 10D and new SL1. We went to the local B&N and found an excellent book on beginner DSLR photography. She read it while playing with my S5IS for a week and then we went to the local BB to look at various cameras and also read reviews on DPR. She decided that she wanted something like the Canon G16. After more investigation, we got her the Olympus XZ-2 when it was $299 and she is very happy with it. I think using a method like this is the way to choose a camera for her.

If it were not for Canon lens commonality with you, I might suggest a Pany or Oly mirrorless with EVF. But between the SL1 and M I think the SL1 is the way to go. I'm very happy with mine.
