Suggestions for an older powershot for a child?

Can anyone recommend several Canon point & shoot cameras for an 8 year old girl?  I've noticed on Ebay that many of the Powershot cameras from 2-4 years ago are available for $35 to $60 and that's my price range. But there's many different models, so it would be great to have a few suggestions.  The prerequisites are... since she's fascinated with macro, it should have good close focusing abilities. We don't need a 20X optical zoom here, but some optical zoom would be nice, and most important, are there any Powershots that had a decent viewing screen?  Since she won't be downloading her photos on a computer, the screen will be her method of enjoying her work.  The only powershot I have any knowledge about is the SX260, but I think that might be overkill here. I'd appreciate any suggestions to get my search started, thanks.
