The digraph “wh” is pronounced /w/, just like the letter “w.” One literature connection to “wh” is A Whistle for Willie written and illustrated by Ezra Jack Keats. Peter is a little boy who yearns for the ability to whistle. He is imaginative and loves to pretend. He follows his dog throughout his neighborhood and house attempting to whistle. This playful story will leave readers whistling or at least trying.
