-- FORT WORTH – Jeremy C. Reed and Heather R. Reed have compiled real-world experience and first-hand knowledge of the Boy Scouts of America program in a new book designed as an essential guide for parents and new leaders. In “Beginning Boy Scouts” (ISBN 9781937516017)
, the Reeds provide instruction and advice to help both youth and adult participants understand scouting goals, terminology, requirements and more. This unofficial guide to the Boy Scouts of America program explains the youth leadership model and answers commonly asked questions on topics ranging from camping to uniforms.
Author Heather Reed explains, “The purpose of this book is not to replace official Boy Scouts of America materials or training. This is something more – this resource includes the sage advice of those who have already walked the path.”
At just 150 pages, this book is intended to be read quickly and referred to often. “Beginning Boy Scouts” provides tactical guidance for key milestones such as successfully preparing for summer camp, scheduling the completion of significant requirements, and completing Eagle paperwork. “Beginning Boy Scouts” is available from Amazon and at http://www.reedmedia.net/books/beginning-boy-scouts/
