Eighth Edition (2003-Present):

Edition Notes: Art by Robert Depew. Version three of Akela is a bit more “cute.” For the first time, Cub Scout books are called “handbooks” in their title. 244 pages, 5 1/4” x 8”. Illustrations are paintings and natural color ink drawings by Robert Depew.

Historical Notes: The first edition called “Handbook” reflects closer integration between Cub Scouting and Boy Scouting. Updated for relevance, appropriateness, ease of use, and perceived challenge to the reader. “Integrated character connections” refer to Cub Scouting’s 12 core values.

Quote: Discuss with your family what “courage” is. Review the requirements and discuss how you might need courage in each one to do what is right. Give some examples of when it is hard to do the right thing. Discuss with your family times that it might take courage to be honest and kind. Tell about a time in your life when you needed to be brave or courageous to do the right thing.
