Triple the Fun with Triplet Stories for Kids

Triplets share a unique upbringing that only other triplets can understand. From the time they are newborns, these tiny humans are showered with attention that is largely focused on their status as a threesome. And while being a triplet can be an incredible gift, it comes with some challenges other siblings (except maybe twins) don't fully understand. Parents are exhausted and outnumbered, so triplets don't always get the attention they crave, and can show signs of jealousy from a very early age. As they grow older and more self-aware, each child strives to find an identity that is separate and apart from the other two. Reading these children's books about triplets will help your trio understand that they are not alone in their experiences.
