Author Profile

Medea  Kalantar

Medea Kalantar, a Reiki Master and Practitioner, is an award-winning author of a new children's book series called Honeycake. Medea was inspired to write these books when she became a grandmother. Her stories are all based on her own family, whose members come from many ethnic backgrounds. This unique mix is a perfect recipe, and it's the reason that she calls her grandchildren her little Honeycakes. With more lovely stories to tell, Honeycake will be followed by a series of books. Each one tells valuable life lessons and gives parents and children the tools to overcome obstacles in their everyday lives. These books will teach children how to do random acts of kindness, have honest and open communication, and practice gratitude. Children will even discover how to meditate and manage their emotions when things don't go their way. Medea writes her stories to help young readers count their blessings and to share positive messages about diverse multicultural families.

Do you have a circle of trust with your kids?

Every Sunday my family and I would have an open forum to talk about what ever was on our minds. It’s important to create a safe space, so your children can come and talk to you about anything without worrying about getting in trouble. I hope this book opens the door to create your circle of trust with your children.

Using blocks as a metaphor

I thought using building blocks as a metaphor, on how long it takes to build, but how quickly it can be destroyed in a split second was a good visual for children to grasp the concept of trust..

“Help”

is a precious account of one little girl's misunderstanding of the idiom, "butterflies in your stomach."

“Help”

When Nala is asked to read in front of her elementary classroom, she feels a stirring from within. As her teacher explains that she has butterflies in her stomach, Nala begins to picture a literal tangle of butterflies she must have swallowed by accident.

Nala is nervous. In fact, she's more than a little nervous. When she is asked to read in front of her elementary classroom, she feels a stirring from within. As her teacher explains that she has butterflies in her stomach, Nala begins to picture a literal tangle of butterflies she must have swallowed by accident, and her misunderstanding continues to blossom before she can arrive at home and be set straight by her mother. “Help I Swallowed A Butterfly”

Honeycake: Special Magical Powers

Children's Books

In the third instalment in the charming Honeycake Book Series, Nala brings her outgrown toys and clothes to Rainbow Hall, and spends the day with her Grandma and Uncle JD discovering a special magical power we all have, called ✨KINDNESS✨ Kindness is a “Special Magical Power” we all have inside of us. When we show kindness, it’s like spreading sunshine everywhere we go — no matter what the weather is like outside. Could you imagine how much nicer the world would be if everyone smiled at each other or did a random act of kindness every day? We are kind when we use our manners by saying please and thank you, or by opening a door, or by giving our seat on a bus or train to a stranger in need. Kindness is a gift we can all afford to give. Though it doesn’t cost a thing, your kindness can mean everything to another person. Use your “Special Magical Powers” and spread kindness everywhere you go!
