The purpose of this study was to develop a book manuscript incorporating higher-order thinking skill development with the reading of American historical fiction . Current literature showed the necessity for promoting higher-order thinking skills among today's students. It was found that current textbooks did not sufficiently address higher-order thinking questioning. It was also found that many thinking skill materials did not integrate those skills with academic content. The information gathered was then used to formulate a book integrating higher-order thinking skills with read- aloud American historical fiction. The book manuscript was to be utilized by intermediate and middle school teachers.
