I've often thought that a book and approach like the MIT AI book by Norvig ("Artificial Intelligence: A Modern Approach" - http://aima.cs.berkeley.edu/) Would be a great way to showcase Haskell and its expressive clarity.

It was thus interesting to find this article " Python for Lisp Programmers" (https://norvig.com/python-lisp.html) and  https://github.com/aimacode, were the book has been translated into many other languages - but not Haskell (yet?).
Haskell is such a great way to teach many programming concepts and applications in a very clean manner, and some of the books used to demonstrate and showcase other languages would be quite nice to have  more common course books with Haskell!

In a more playful flavor; "Impractical Python Projects" - again all things that map nicely into some simple Haskell examples.  ( https://nostarch.com/impracticalpythonprojects )
"Python is a programming language, but it is also fun to play with. This book recognises that."

LYAH & RWH are really great - but some books with more application oriented approaches can be good starters and inroads for introductions to Haskell.
