I am currently using Klammer and Schulz' _Analyzing English Grammar_, which has fairly good explanations and some exercises. You might also want to look at Martha Kolln's _Understanding English Grammar_, which is just out in a 4th edition and has an accompanying workbook of exercises. The grammatical treatment is fairly traditional, even to the extent of relying almost exlusively on Reed-Kellogg diagramming. I think the book is relatively non-threatening, though. I once used the 3rd edition and found it to be much too simplistic, but a cursory thumbing through the 4th edition leads me to believe that extensive revisions were made.
