It seems my kids always want a terrifically tongue twisting book  read when I am especially tired!  Books that teach alliteration (or repetitive beginning sounds) are a lot of fun for preschoolers and an important part of early literacy skills.

Here is a list of absolutely awesome alliteration books you can share with your preschoolers!  I dare you not to be tongue tied!

  • The Absolutely Awful Alphabet by Mordicai Gerstein
  • I’m Dirty by Kate & Jim McMullan
  • Each Peach Pear Plum by Janet & Allen Ahl
  • Away from Home by Anita Lobel
  • Click, Clack, Quackity-quack: An Alphabetical Adventure by Doreen Cronn
  • Dinorella: A Prehistoric Fairy Tale by Pamela Duncan Edwards
  • Ellsworth’s Extraordinary Electric Ears: and Other Amazing Alphabet Anecdotes by Valerie Fisher
