Menchin Goodnight SelfieI think this is a great story as even very young children know how to take selfie photos with their parents’ cell phones. In this story the little girl’s brother teaches her how to take a selfie. The little girl gets her brother’s old phone when he gets a new one. The little girl cannot stop taking selfies. She then realizes she needs to take pictures of others as well. She doesn’t want to go to sleep because there are just so many selfies she needs to take. That is why she takes a good night selfie. I think this story is very applicable to today’s children’s experiences.
