Simple Russian books for children


I’m looking for Russian children’s books to read and work from. The kind that you would give to a 5-year-old. 

Thanks for any ideas!

I tried to use children's stories and fables (Колобок, Курочка Ряба, etc.) to learn but I quickly found out that nobody talks like that irl.

In my experience, children's books are a bad idea to start learning Russian if you're an adult. They tend to use a very particular kind of language that is not used in every day conversation. Better take a book for adults, maybe some adaptation
