I'm a beginner at the language, and I've thought about trying out some Russian children's books. The only problem is that all the literature I find online in it is too advanced for me. What are some children's books in it that would be good for a pretty much beginner?

There are Russian texts online, short stories but also children's books, with subtitles, so also accessible to a beginner, and that you can read anywhere on your smartphone or tablet, or behind a laptop or pc:

Bermuda Word
Has Russian fairytales and short stories where every word has manually translated pop-up translation.

The Polyglot Project
Has a lot of content but google translated so not always easy to understand or in right conjugation or correct. Also literature only, no starters texts.

Doppeltext Russian English
Has some example free texts but rest cost money. The dual-language readers that I knew are not free (anymore).

Studypubs Russian English
Not free. You can preview the whole book I think but it's not very handy for reading.

Nothing beats reading an actual book but there needs to be a stage between a Russian course and actually reading books (which is btw the best method by far to become fluent, as you will never encounter as many new words in any other method than plain old reading).

I think that children's books might be very difficult for a beginner.

You can also consider russian graded readers (available on the internet, if you see what I mean.)
By order of difficulty, I give a few of them for beginners:

Шкатулочка
Начинаем читать по-русски (with audio)
Шкатулка
Удивительные истории. 116 текстов для чтения (my favourite one for its progressity)
50 русских текстов

I don't advise to read children's literature, it's better to read Chekhov's stories: more
interesting in terms of learning Russian. my friend, studying Russian in TSU
http://philology.tsu.ru/ told me about it.
