GEOGRAPHY LESSON

GEOGRAPHY LESSON

There’s an educational publishing company that apparently needed a geography lesson before going to print. Scholastic has announced it will cease shipments of a popular children’s book that omitted Israel from the map of the Middle East.

Thea Stilton and the Blue Scarab Hunt, part of the Geronimo Stilton series, included a map of Egypt that showed surrounding countries, including Libya, Sudan, Saudi Arabia and Jordan….but somehow omitted Israel.

A company spokesperson commented “Scholastic is immediately stopping shipment on this title, revising the map, and going back to reprint. We regret the omission. ” Pretty sure the book won’t make it on my gift list for young readers.
