Good books for beginners

Hello everyone! I found some good sites with books for beginners. I read a couple and understood most of what was written so they are not so hard. First, these are children's book: http://www.childrensbooksforever.com/childrenpages/German1.html http://www.childrenslibrary.org/icdl/AdvancedSearchCategory?selIds=64=3=1=cover=match=everywhere=36=all=en=English==German=OK And this is a link to project Gutenberg. Its an online library for books that are part of the public domain so they vary in difficulty: http://gutenberg.spiegel.de/genre/marchen-fairy Enjoy and if you know similar sites it would be great if you leave links with your comments!

Here's Aschenputtel (Cinderella). There's an audio button in the upper right, so you can hear it being read aloud. The site has other stories as well, but I think this is the only one with audio, unless I'm mistaken. (I haven't looked in a long time.)
