Surely not something I've thought about before

(FYI-we are studying the letter Qq this week)

Boy:  "Mom, why is there even the letter Q in the alphabet anyway?"

I give a puzzled look at him.

Boy:  "I mean, you can put the c and w together to get the same sound as q.  So, why the letter Q?  And what about Z?  For xylophone-the xy together make the z sound.  Why is it, Mom?"
Oh, how I wish I had the answers!!!
Do you?
I may just need to contact Webster Dictionary on this question!
God bless,
