I'm looking for a corpus of children's primary literacy texts, preferably organised by reading level? This would be the kind of texts, stories, narratives, letters etc that primary age children would use at school to develop their reading and literacy skills. I'm not looking for child-produced data. I'm working in the Australian context but if there is not an Australian specific-dataset (i.e. following the Australian curriculum's levelling system) then one from another English-speaking country would suffice. Would anyone happen to know if such a dataset exists?
