Alliteration is the repetition of initial sounds.

"A florid woman was flapping a pink feather fan" (Esther Forbes, Johnny Tremain, 75).

Barbara Bottner builds her alphabet book An Annoying ABC around alliteration, each of the characters performing an action with the same initial letter as his/her name: Adelaide annoyed, Bailey blamed, Clyde cried etc.
