Frogwart said, "U's make nice sounds. Some u sounds are simple, like up, bug and duck or use, true and ukulele."

"There's also a different and lovely u sound in words like wonderful and delightful."

"When o and u work together, the sound may be like out, found, and mouse. It might also sound like you or even your. Then there are words like thought and caught. Be careful. U's can be tricky."

"Add u to q and listen to quiet, quick, squish and square. Use a g instead of the q in words like penguin. "

"U's can make unusual and funny sounds. Sometimes you may not hear a u at all. Listen to scrumptious. How many u's did you hear?"

"I think making u sounds is fun. Do you?"
