Childhood literature is an universal heritage and many of our pupils will feel encouraged to read books with more interest by knowing our partners’ national literature, legends and fairy tales, thus, discovering new cultural horizons. This project allows us to arrange a virtual international collaboration between our pupils and teachers which will become reality through pupils exchanges and project meetings. We will provide them the possibility to meet, exchange their experience, communicate and make long time friendship.
