B, as in Blend

Anya was reading aloud tonight from an old reader, and sounding out the words she doesn't know.  She got to the word "children" and sounded out "K-hh-i-l-d-r-eh-n".  She paused, and then shouted "Children!"  Before she could continue, I asked her:

Me: Anya, is the CH at the beginning a blend?
Anya: K-hh-i...there's no B!

Hmm.  Maybe I'll just leave her alone and let her read.
