Alliteration happens when words that start with the same sound (not just the same letter) are used repeatedly in a phrase or sentence. The sound is usually a consonant and the words don't have to be right next to one another.
One of the fun features of alliteration is when it becomes a tongue twister. Get ready to bring on some giggles as you explore these alliteration examples for kids.
