The KISS Workbooks Anthology
This link leads to KISS exercises based on short stories and poems. Some links also connect to the story, poem, or other short text.
My main sources for texts for KISS exercises:
Project Gutenberg
Gutenberg has a huge collection of free books. You may particularly be interested in the Children’s Bookshelves.
Internet Archive
This is “a non-profit library of millions of free books, movies, software, music, websites, and more.” It doesn’t catalog “children’s literature,” but when I put that in the “Any field” in the “advanced search,” I got 19,977 results, many of which you can simply download, and also many that you can borrow. (I haven’t tried that.) It works better if you just put in an author’s name or the name of a specific story, etc. A search for “fables” in “title” returned 2,639 books, articles, audio, etc.
People have also found the following interesting.
This site has over 14,000 audiobooks, many for children.
Awesome Library: Elementary Literature
Awesome Library: Middle High School Literature
A menu at the top of this page will take to you to “Reference,” “Verse,” “Fiction,” and “Non-fiction.” It is a massive source.
Fairy Tales and Bedtime Stories
Including many stories, this site also has links to still more sources. It was suggested by Sarah Smith.
