People often search for a pdf or electronic version of the Cub Scout handbook. I’m excited to tell you that BSA has made the new handbooks and leader guides available in a Kindle version.
If you don’t have a Kindle, don’t worry! There are free Kindle reader apps available for your tablet, smartphone or computer! Just click on over to Amazon to download them. I’ve been reading Kindle books on my iPad for years.
I love the fact that the new Cub Scout handbook download is now available! As a Cub Scout parent, it’s great to be able to look up a requirement quickly. And as a den leader, you can make sure you’ve covered all of the requirements, if you don’t have your book handy. Now, I don’t believe that these should take the place of the hard copy of the book for the boys, but it’s great to have the information available at your fingertips.
You can order these electronic handbooks by clicking on the images or the links below. That will take you to Amazon through my affiliate link.

Right now, use caution if you want to order the hard copies of the handbooks from Amazon. Most (if not all) of the physical handbooks being sold on Amazon are through third party sellers, and many of them are still selling the old handbooks.
If you can’t get to your local Scout Shop to pick up a physical copy of the book, you can order it online from Scout Stuff.
So, let me know what you think about the new handbooks!
Yours in Scouting,
September 9, 2014 Update: Unfortunately, the Boy Scouts of America has requested that I remove the PDFs of the Cub Scout handbooks that were previously posted here. I wish that I could continue to provide these for you, but I must comply with BSA’s request.
