Not only is the story in this book entertaining, but it teaches some very important lessons about diversity and breaking down limits.

Publisher’s Book Summary: In the sixth installment of the delightful Honeycake book series, Nala’s uncles, Victor and George, take her to a fundraiser where she meets Alexis, a girl with an artificial arm. Through her interactions, Nala learns that you are never too young to lend “a helping hand,” that it’s okay to be different, and that being different doesn’t stop you from doing great things in life.
Medea Kalantar is a Reiki master and practitioner, a Guinness World Record Holder, and a multi-award-winning, best-selling author of the Honeycake Book Series(TM). Inspired to write these books when she became 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.
Themes: Inclusion, differences, people with disabilities
Honeycake: A Helping Hand, is the sixth book in the Honeycake series. The main character Nala meets a girl with an artificial arm, and learns how to embrace and celebrate the differences that unite us all.
Not only is the story in this book entertaining, but it teaches some very important lessons about diversity and breaking down limits. The book also contains a glossary of words used throughout the book, which is a great way to build understanding around terms that some children may be hearing for the first time. I love the message of this book, and it is one that your children will want to read over and over. As if that wasn't reason enough to add this book to your home library, all proceeds from each book sale goes to The War Amps CHAMP Program.
