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!
