How small is your kid?
There are several folks who have put together a Bill of Materials to adapt the Savage Rascal youth rifle for a target peep rear sight and a globe front.

You could probably do about the same thing with a smaller lighter youth rifle of nearly any brand.

Another option is to hunt sites like Gunbroker and buy a used rifle that's already been converted by somebody else. That may actually be the most economical option - as the market doesn't put a large premium on target aperture sights. You buy the rifle for about the same price as a regular model - but you get $200-300 worth of sights and gunsmith work basically free.
