You can't go wrong with Cannon. or Nikon. or a Sony with a nice lense.
Remember, optical zoom is more important than digital zoom.
Look for a higher optical zoom. (higher is better=better lense)
Read reviews on Amazon, and maybe search for some photography forums.
You will definately want to get one with a rechargable battery pack, as most cameras run through batteries pretty quickly.
The Rebel is a nice camera.
Also take a look at the Nikon D40.
