The Cub Scout Leader book is Rules and Regulations, the How to Book is a book
of fun things to do, make and plays, skits, stories, etc. I tell all of my
new leaders they are musts! Also the Cub Scout Program Helps, Your Den Book,
I believe you said Wolf so a Wolf Den Book for you. Don't share with your
son. He needs his own! And So do you.
These are books that I tell every leader that they MUST HAVE.
There are also some that are really optional that your Unit may have in a
Cub Scout Fun Book, Ethics in Action, Cub Scout Magic, Cub Scout Songbook,
Staging Den and Pack Ceremonies, Group Meeting Sparklers.
Also USE your Girl Scout books. I use them all the time. (In my experience
though, I have found it best not to let the boys know it came from a GS
There are other good books in your public library that are good resources,
like craft ideas, stories, plays, etc.
Good luck and Welcome to Scouting!!!!
