Youth Literature

Each Cub Scout has a handbook to help them along their trail. Tiger Cubs use the Tiger Cub Handbook with activities in the Den, at home, and in the community. Wolf Cubs have a handbook that will help them along the Wolf Trail where they learn more about themselves and their families. Bear Cubs have a handbook that takes them even further,but they get to choose the achievements they complete. Webelos have a larger handbook with 20 Activity Badges they can work on in the 2 years they are Webelos.

Another good source of information for Cub Scouts is the magazine BSA published 12 times each year. This is the Boys' Life magazine. It is full of stories, games, jokes, and letters that are fun to read. You will be learning new things while reading. This is one magazine your teacher will not mind you reading at school, once your work is done.
