Second Edition - Cover A (1948):

Edition Notes: Cover art by Don Ross. 156 pages. 5 1/2” x 8”. Illustrations were two color (brick red and black) linear cartoons by Don Ross.

Historical Notes: The program name changed to “Cub Scouting.” The new book was a rewrite for eight year old boys, however the age change was delayed until Arthur Schuck became Chief Scout Executive in 1949.

Quote: We are glad YOU are going to be a Cub Scout. Boy are you going to have fun! You like to play games, don’t you? Well you came to the right place. Cub Scouts play lots of games. Making things is OK with you too. With the Cub Scouts you can make boats, airplanes, Indian suits, and other things you like. It’s fun to make believe. Cub Scouts in their meetings make believe they are cowboys, Indians, airplane pilots, firemen, policemen, and other interesting men.

Second Edition - Cover B (1949-1953):

Edition Notes: Cover A was rendered a bit too harshly and was soon reworked by Don Ross. 156 pages until 1/1953 when the parents supplement was incorporated into the text bringing the total to 172 pages. 5 1/2” x 8”. Illustrations were two color (brick red and black) linear cartoons by Don Ross.
