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
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 follows the journey of Nala and how she learns about the magical powers she and everyone else has. She learns a valuable lesson from her family about kindness and how much it can mean to another person. I absolutely love this book. It is adorable and teaches children such an imperative lesson. It also presents the idea of kindness in such an understandable way, even for young children. Nala learns about small things, like smiles, but then the story moves on to a much more serious topic. She is donating her old clothes and toys to a shelter for families; she learns about families who have lost everything. Her kindness of donating her old stuff that she has outgrown shows just how important it is because donating her old things cost her nothing, but it meant everything to those families to have clothing and toys. I love how this book can spark important conversations with children about how some people are less fortunate, and how sometimes you need help and it is okay to ask for it
