I found these YouTube videos. Not books but maybe helpful.

https://youtu.be/kVaE41hth8w - song from Moana. You can search YouTube for "čeština disney" and come up with a few good videos.
https://youtu.be/hAO_1RgPXH0 - children's song (this account has several children's songs/cartoons)
https://youtu.be/AX8fRRWTaFI - simple vocab for little kids

Children's books in Czech on Amazon (kind of expensive): https://www.amazon.com/Childrens-Books-Czech/s?page=1&rh=n%3A4%2Cp_n_feature_nine_browse-bin%3A3291457011

I've created a spreadsheet with Czech learning resources, including reading material. They're not children's books but stories adapted for foreigners learning the language.

It is a pity that the best Czech fairy tales use somewhat archaic language so they are probably too hard.

I just finished reading "Pohádky" from Lída Holá it's for level A2 and has a small dictionary with nearly all the words used for english, german and russian in one table (NOTE: "ch" comes after "h", thank me later). It has 12 fairy tales each 1 to 1 1/2 pages long and exercises for each one. I really enjoyed it, felt like I was a small child again. ISBN-13: 978-80-87481-98-1

Try comics. Especially if you can have the Czech and original (or second translation) side by side. Any “classic” should work for this purpose, e.g, Asterix, Donald Duck, etc.
