The story of the Pony Express at a Cub Scout level. Can be used to introduce the concept of storytelling.
Head West Young Man
Perseverance is defined as sticking with something and not giving up, even if it is difficult. As the pioneers headed west across this great country, they met many difficulties, yet they did not give up. Instead, they kept going, overcame the adversities they met, and helped to develop our wonderful country.
This book was recommended a few years ago when I went to Cub Scout BALOO training. I am not a “knot person”. I can watch someone do a knot and repeat it, but an hour later it is forgotten.
