(Jewish Press) Scholastic Publishing Company is the largest children’s book publishing company in the world. It is based in the United States. Among the books series it publishes are Harry Potter, the Magic School Bus and The Hunger Games.

Early Wednesday, Nov. 13, news stories began to appear that Scholastic published a book with a map of the Middle East that has no Israel on it. By early Wednesday afternoon, the folks at Scholastic had already issued an apology and publicized its plan of action. That’s quick action.

But is it enough?
