Clarification Request
I wish it was simpler than that.

For some folk "best" may be a pocket point and shoot. Someone else would demand something with lots of controls. One person declared that all cameras that didn't use AA batteries off their list.

What I'm writing here is that "best" is best to those that know what best is.

Thanks for your reply.

All I would like to do is present my a friend a compact camera to capture her 3 yr old pictures.

Although I don't need a professional camera requirements, I wish the image clarity is crisp and the camera is worth the budget.

Can you please suggest few models for point and shoot camera please ? Or can you provide what are the pros and cons to look for ?

Need clarification.
Are you saying take pictures of 3-year old pictures or
take pictures of a 3-year old child.

If you are saying take pictures of pictures, then you should consider a scanner.
If you are saying take pictures of a three year old child, then consider the Canon S110.
