Honeycake: A Family Of Spices , introduces readers to a diverse, multi-cultural family that is full of love.
A grandmother explains why she calls her grandchildren “Honeycakes” while she teaches her granddaughter, Nala, how to bake a honey cake.
Through imagination, the grandmother details how each delicious ingredient represents a different family member and his or her unique ethnic background.
Medea Kalantar, a Reiki Master/Practitioner, a Guinness World Record Holder and a multi-award-winning best selling author of a new children’s book series titled Honeycake.
Inspired to write these books when she learned she would become a grandmother, Kalantar’s stories are based on her own family, whose members come from many ethnic backgrounds. This unique mix is a perfect recipe—just like the spices in a honey cake. That is why she calls her grandchildren her little Honeycakes.
With all the negativity in the world today, Kalantar’s series is a much-needed glimmer of positivity. The Honeycake series teaches valuable life lessons, giving children the tools to overcome obstacles in their everyday lives.
The Honeycake books teach children about diversity, kindness, mindfulness, trust, and
gratitude. This series will enlighten, empower, educate, and entertain children for generations to come.
“No matter where we come from or what colour our skin is, we are all one race ... the human race. We are all one!” says Kalantar.
Canadian author Medea Kalantar immigrated from Georgia U.S.S.R. when she was four years old. She and her husband Esfandiar, who immigrated to Canada from Iran, are parents to two beautiful children. They welcomed their first grandchild in 2019.
This book is a story about acceptance and celebrating the different backgrounds that make us unique. Just like the spices in a honey cake, our different ethnicities blended together, create the single beautiful entity that is humanity, which adds flavour to life! Shedding light on what makes us different brings compassion, understanding and positivity to the darkness.
At the end of the book there is a recipe for readers to follow so they can make their own honey cake.
This book has many different meanings, It’s more than just a recipe. It’s a recipe for life as well, because it’s teaching all about diversity and multiculturalism. The main subject of the book is that eventhough we look different and come from different places, we are all part of one race…THE HUMAN RACE. In this beautiful world we live in, WE ARE ALL ONE.
