The project is going to be held due to World's Book and Copyright Day (23 rd April). Students from participating schools find book titles in their native language, including colours in the book title. (e.g. Little Red Riding Hood) and translate them into English. Then the titles are categorised according to the colour in their name to check what colour is the most popular. Students make posters/presentations and design their own book cover with a colour in its titleas a final stage, then they exchange/compare them with those of participating schools .
