Dina Malar (Daily Flower) Newspaper, and found Siruvar Malar, a children's insert. It looks like this supplement comes out once a week and Siruvar Malar's Back Issues provide archives going back to October 2008. Downloadable pdfs go back to January 2009.
The stories are still on the long side for a very beginning reader. It looks like a good resource when I have a larger working vocabulary.
