About the Author

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.

Having just read Medea Kalantar’s book “Honeycake - A Family of Spices”, I must say the book itself has a very delectable taste to it. Indeed the author has created a synesthesia working with tastes and a delicious dessert and letting it reflect the quality of life and its relationship. You find how each element of a recipe symbolizes and reflects a positive feature in each of the members of the family. Honeycake will be understood by all ages and truly is a refreshing approach to human life with its joy, blessing and special qualities. While Honeycake has been written as a children’s book, it has a charm which I predict will entrance any age. I read the booklet 3 times and found it enchanting. By: The Amazing Kreskin

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ "Nala's grandma is one smart cookie. She is determined for her granddaughter to know exactly how special she is. She has a unique way of explaining to Nala that she is a blend of all of her parents' and grandparents' heritages. When Nala stops by for a visit with her grandma, the two of them set about making her family's famous honeycake. Nala, ever curious, asks her grandma why her pet name is "Honeycake," and the story begins. Medea Kalantar's Honeycake: A Family of Spices gives young readers a fantastic story with which to relate. Nala, the story's main character visits with her grandmother and hears from her exactly how special her family's background is. As her grandmother proceeds to bake with Nala, she explains in detail the ancestry of each side of Nala's family and how the two families blend together to make unique individuals. It is quite uncommon to find stories explaining heritage to children of elementary age, and Kalantar has certainly delivered a memorable story. When Nala's grandmother relates cultural diversity to the many spices and ingredients required to make her honeycake, young readers are handed a scenario that is easy to follow and is presented in a manner that has been carefully crafted to demonstrate to readers the way in which they, too, are extraordinary. Perhaps the most important aspect of Kalantar's writing is her comment on the human race. The author is careful to emphasize that no matter one's ancestry, we are all part of one race. This is a message seldom seen in books for young readers and is quite refreshing. As an elementary teacher, I highly recommend Honeycake: A Family of Spices to anyone looking to teach or emphasize the appreciation of diversity to young readers." Literary Titan

This is a great children’s book. The illustrations are lovely and the story is so touching with the grandmother explaining how each ingredient in the honey cake represents a different family member. Loved the powerful message “that we are all one race” no matter the color of your skin, your religious beliefs or what country you come from. We need more books like this! Well Done Medea Kalantar! Can’t wait to read more books from your Honeycake series. Oh and thank you for including the recipe on how to make a honey cake. My children and I thought it was delicious.
