Dodgers_JP_Howell_2013 [1]Of all the images you might have of how a major league pitcher spends his November, this probably is not the first one that comes to mind: J.P. Howell squeezing himself into a kid-sized rocking chair, turning the pages of a colorful storybook, smiling before a room full of children he has never met.

He is holding the book, pointing to the illustrations of the adorably playful monkey. His wife, Heather, is reading the book. She wrote it.

The Howells have come here, not too far from Dodger Stadium, to the Children’s Bureau Preschool at Magnolia Place. They have a message they feel compelled to share with the 4-year-olds: If you are bullied, let someone know. No kid should have to suffer in silence.
