Just out of curiosity, does Hooked on Phonics really say the letter sounds like "buh" and "duh" and "guh"? Those letters actually make the sounds /b/, /d/, and /g/. I ask only because Desta was taught in Ethiopia that the sounds were "buh," "duh," and "guh," and that really frustrated her learning to read when she got here. I had to train her out of that because she would sound words like "bat" out by saying "buh-ah-tuh" and then say the word as "buhatuh." I had to reteach the correct sounds so that when she sounded out "bat" it actually sounded like /b/ "ah" /t/.
