Anna Magdalena Bach seems like a good choice to me. I also like Bartok's Mikrokosmos and Schummann's Album for the Young (the less complex pieces). I'm not a teacher though, so this is strictly from a student's perspective.

I have not been able to understand what this whole topic is supposed to be about, and Mark's explanations just make it worse. All I hear in the recordings are notes which are more or less tuned.
