About the Author

Matt Burgess is Skylar's owner. He lives outside Atlanta, Georgia with his wife, daughter and son. He holds two degrees from Samford University in Birmingham, Alabama. His experience learning history as an adult led to a passion to share what he had learned with his children in excitingly real ways. A search for children's books found a few that were nothing like he hoped. Rather than give up, he poured his vision into creating an effective educational tool. The result is an innovative book called Skylar and George Washington. http://www.mattburgess.net

Meet Skylar...an adorable pup with a great knack for history.
Travel along with her as she journeys through the days of one of our country's greatest heroes...George Washington.

Skylar and George Washington, written by Matt Burgess, is a truly remarkable read. Combining fun with actual history is the perfect way to teach children, both big and small alike.

This wonder puppy is there with our first president through thick and thin.
From the day he was born, all the way until his death, and many adventures in between.

Each page is written in flowing rhyme, describing the events in George Washington's life. The adjoining page goes into much deeper detail, along with quotes and dates.

The pictures are eye-popping. Beautiful photographic snapshots, combined with colorful and fun animated graphics, make this book a treasure. This makes it easy for children to relate and realize the reality of the events the book is describing.

I love how I can use this book to teach all of my littles, from toddler to teen.
How, you may ask?

Well, from colors to animals for the little ones, to facts, dates, and a delving point for historical information for the older children.
Ezra loved looking at the cows and bright contrast of the photos.
Jonas and Micah enjoyed pointing out George Washington and searching for Skylar's dog treats on every page.
And Elias and Ashley were enthralled in learning the informational tidbits the book had to offer, like George Washington's sweet tooth for ice cream.

As they get older, I definitely plan on including Skylar and George Washington in my homeschool lessons each year. I can totally see this as being an invaluable and amazingly interesting way to enjoy history.

I purchased this book for a friend's child. The book was perfect for this beginning reader, who is motivated to ask questions. He could easily read the left side of each page(written for age 1-3),but could read some of the right side of each page(written for older children and adults). He was fascinated with the age of George Washington on each page, noticing how George changed from young to old. SKYLAR, such a precious pup, made George Washington actually become "real" with wooden teeth and more! The real photos helped to visualize and remember more easily the events of George's life.

I purchased this book for several kids in my life - however, none are my own. Once I got the book and had the opportunity to read it myself, I was blown away. This book provides so many facts about George Washington that most people don't know. It presents the information in a fun way for kids to enjoy and learn, but also has some great information for adults too. I would highly recommend this to anyone looking for a great way to educate their children while keeping them entertained!

This book is bright and engaging. Colorful pictures, friendly characters, a rhyming story and loads of historical facts make this a book that will grow with your children. Little ones will enjoy following Skylar (the pup) and George in their adventures while older children will enjoy digging into the historical content. We are looking forward to the next Skylar adventure!
