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.

Which line stood out from all the others in the book?
The point of the book is to teach about trust and having a circle of trust in the family. The line that stands out for me is when the father or papa introduces the idea. He says, "This is our circle of trust. It means you can come and talk to us about anything, and we can come and talk to you, too. It explains it and involves all of them.
