  • Hi Donna,
    Thank you to you and your team for producing a great site. I have been a member for years and the resources have been so helpful.
    I have just tried downloading the word family ‘oo’ sound (incorporating ook, ood and ould), and have found the ‘ear’ sound resources are coming up instead. Can you have a look at this please.
