Alliteration does not always have to start with the same LETTER. It requires the same start SOUND, which often comes from the same letter but does not have to.

Hi Sarah,

Fortunately, the actual resource said ‘sound’ but the thumbnail and post had not been amended. This has now been corrected. Thank you for letting us know!
