The book "Joy of Smalltalk" by Ivan Tomek was written to teach
programming in Smalltalk.  You can find it at

It is for VisualWorks, so a lot of things will be different, but most

You could get a free version of VisualWorks, but the book was written
10 years ago so VisualWorks has changed since then, too.
