Well, yeah. By "example sentences" I meant sentences that were meant to build your reading fluency -- I guess "example" is kind of a bad word to use there.
Rather than trying to "fake" that with a book, I usually just read various things that interest me in Japanese - I find this much better, as its a more interesting and realistic way of studying, and you tend to learn vocabulary and kanji related to (or useful when talking about) subjects of your interest.
I just use ALC and various online/computer dictionaries for the most part.

I'd say a kana book would be worthless. You can easily learn hiragana and katakana without one. A book i would recommned though is 'A Guide to Kanji & Kana'
I bought this after i already knew the hiragana and katakana, however. It is a good review book for kana, but also has about 750 kanji. I've found it to be very effective.
