I knew Spanish versions of the Cub Scout handbooks were online, but I didn't realize English versions were available also. Browsing around scouting.org I found these huge PDF files.
These are the 2008 printings, except for Wolf which is 2006.Note:
The English versions have been removed from scouting.org but they've been copied to many other locations. The links below go to a few locations that may remain active, or not.
All these handbooks will be obsolete soon, when the new Cub Scout program is released.
Click on a link below each image to open the PDF, and then wait.

This is great - I print the Spanish-language versions of the handbooks for some parents who speak/read very little English - it helps them stay involved with their sons!

Thank you so much. As a den leader this helps so much with those that never seem to get the book and now I can assign work and have the scouts get the acheivement and advancement with no excuses :)!! I need some in chinese. Do you know where I can get some?

Felicia - They're not printed in Chinese as far as I know.

Just an fyi that the English versions (with the exception of Tigers) have been removed. It seems that they were never supposed to be available online in English...

@Sherry - Thanks for the heads up. I figured they wouldn't last forever. :-(
I've added links to other places on the net where the handbooks can be found.
