Have a look at a book called 'Turn Left at Orion'.

This is a great book, designed for beginners (like me). It shows you what to look for, what it'll look like in binoculars, telescope and even to the naked eye. Not cheap but worth every penny as it is realistic about what you'll see. Most importantly it helps you to navigate the night sky.
If you've got an iPhone/Pad, the Starmap app is superb. It doesn't beat an actual book for me but it has interactive maps, including showing Santa's route through the night sky, it can also show maps in red light or just act as a red torch.
