Lens recommendation appreciated -- for my daughter

I have my fingers crossed that I may finally get my daughter (age 53) to go out with me on a series of photo excursions.  Two years ago I gave her a Pentax body and two fixed length lenses when she made a trip to Europe.   Now I would like to give her a not too heavy zoom.

My 70-200 will be AOK for me when we go out.  But much too heavy for her.  I also would like to insure that the image quality is great.

So what do I buy -- I see things such as: 28-105; 16-50; 50-135; 24-70; etc.

If this is to become more than a trip or two she will have to love the images she captures.  In your hands -- help me understand what to buy.
