Bright Through Learning

Our world sometimes can leave us fearing that we are surrounded by dangers, and learning is an important tool we use to understand and live in our world. Among the meanings of the word bright are smart, clever, and quick- all helpful characteristics in our challenging world. This 2016 edition of The World Book Encyclopedia® adopts the pink anemonefish as a mascot to represent the encyclopedia's invitation to you to become brighter through the learning you do within its pages!
