Honeycake: Special Magical Powers - A Children's Picture Book About Kindness, Compassion and Empathy
Literary Titan Gold Winning Book
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.
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.
HAPPY, CARING CHILDREN
The good feelings that we experience when being kind are produced by endorphins. They activate areas of the brain that are associated with pleasure, social connection, and trust. These feelings of joyfulness are proven to be contagious, encouraging more kind behavior (also known as altruism) by the giver and recipient. Acts of kindness help us form connections with others which are reported to be a strong factor in increasing happiness.
Kindness is a key ingredient that enhances positivity and helps children feel good about themselves as it increases serotonin levels. This important chemical affects learning, memory, mood, sleep, health, and digestion. Children with a positive outlook have greater attention spans, more willingness to learn, and better creative thinking to improve results at school.
In the third installment in the charming Honeycake 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✨
Nala, learns the value of kindness and giving to others in this sweetheart of a story! As Nala states "being kind is like sprinkling a little bit of magic everywhere you go!" This sweet, cheerful book uplifts this message, and even better, it shows kids that they have power in their lives and they can be a positive force in their communities.
Readers give this book and series a 5.0 out of 5 stars!
KINDNESS IS SO IMPORTANT
"After reading 'Honeycake: Special Magical Powers', me and my 5 year old son took the time to reflect on our most memorable acts of kindness. My son was so happy to learn that he had been using his magical powers all along. The story was so well written with an easy to follow storyline that kept my son intrigued from start to finish. He usually falls asleep mid-story but tonight, he wanted to know how this story ended. I asked him what he liked most about the book, and he said, "when Nala shared her toys with the kids that lost theirs in the fire." He loved the book and promises to use more of his magical powers to put a smile on other kids faces. I highly recommended this book to all families as it teaches our children the importance of caring, sharing and of course, kindness."
It's the perfect gift for all teachers and children, preschool through grade 3. It helps caregivers and educators start an age-appropriate conversation on how kindness is caring about others and doing things to help make their lives better. Which allows us to connect with other people and build meaningful relationships. Sometimes we just need a little inspiration to spread some love and kindness in the world and Honeycake: Special Magical Powers does that perfectly!
