Hi everyone! I am Howard J. Bennett, pediatrician, children’s author, and Lego fan. I love my job and spend most of my time taking care of kids at my office in Washington, D.C. But in my spare time, I write books and fun articles on all sorts of topics. My website includes information about my books and lots of free stuff, including articles I write for the KidsPost section of the Washington Post newspaper and the Life Is Gross column I write for Jack and Jill magazine. I have a blog that provides information for parents on common pediatric problems. I even included a collection of my favorite gross stories, which I love to share with patients.
