Content descriptions

Summary, etc.:
"Jacob is nine years old when his life changes. He wants a litter of puppies. But instead his parents have a different surprise. Jacob will be an older brother soon. And there won't be only one new baby. There will be three! When the triplets are born, Jacob thinks puppies are cuter. The babies look identical to him and he gives them a name: ٢the Trips.٣ For a school science project, Jacob decides to study the Trips. It feels like magic as they begin to smile, talk, and grow. Slowly, he gets to know each of them. They call his mother ٢Mama٣ and his father ٢Da.٣ But what will they call him? One day, one of the Trips calls him ٢Jay.٣ As each of the triplets become unique and more special with each day, Jacob starts to wonder if ٢the Trips٣ is still a good name for them. They aren't puppies, or a bunch of bananas, and they aren't just ٢the Trips٣ anymore. What should he call them that will show what they mean to him? Can he figure out their ٢forever name?٣ And will he ever get a puppy?"-- Amazon
