In Mounties for Kids, acclaimed wildlife artist Tom Hunter turns his pen to creating fun activities for children about the history of the Royal Canadian Mounted Police. Founded in 1873, the RCMP has gone through many changes, from a force that travelled by horse and dogsled to one that uses modern investigation techniques. The activities in these pages will introduce kids to different types of police work—from enforcing traffic laws to tracking suspects—and expand their appreciation of the RCMP’s role in Canada’s history.
Tom Hunter’s activity books have won wide praise from children, parents, and teachers for the quality of the artwork and their originality. Mounties for Kids is an engaging and educational resource for the whole family.
