This is the story of the oo. It’s an amusing sound for all of you.

The Oo in Uluru is a fun Australian-themed phoneme story that teaches young readers about the long vowel sound oo and where they can find it in different words.

This book describes a range of native animals in their natural habitat and environment. There are indigenous animals that go beyond the usual kangaroo and koala, which young readers will find colourful and engaging. The book is notable for its use in teaching children the many different digraphs that have the ‘oo’ sound. This playful focus on sound and letter correspondence is a perfect link to a phonological awareness lesson and a discussion with children.
