You know ‘Mr Brown Can Moo’ by Dr Seuss?’ There are so many cool OO sounds in this story!

The OO spelling

Mr Brown can MOO

How about you?

He can go like an owl HOO, HOO, HOO!

He can go like a train – CHOO, CHOO, CHOO!

He can go like a rooster – COCK-A-DOODLE-DOO!

The EW and UE spelling (Long ‘u’ sound)

Mr Brown’s NEPHEW

Is a TRUE, BLUE Australian,

He likes steak and kidney STEW.

EW! Not me…

It’s much too hard to CHEW!

Mr Brown’s cousin,


What a silly duffer

He hasn’t got a CLUE!
