Welcome to the Meet Desert Kid page. Desert Kid is a character I created in 2004. I created Desert Kid because of my travels throughout western Canada in 1998 and then again in 2004. I lived in Kamloops, British Columbia for 9 years. I loved living there and miss it very much.
In 1998, I traveled throughout the Okanagan Valley region of British Columbia and I found out that Canada has a semi-desert region. That was a surprise for me. Living in Ontario for my whole life, I never heard of the Okanagan Valley or our semi-desert region.
The reason I created Desert Kid is so more people would become aware of the different ecological areas Canada has to offer.
I added Desert Kid to my group of characters called the Canadian Family. The Canadian Family are a group of characters that each live in different regions of Canada. I have either traveled through these places or lived in these areas.
Storyland has lots of stories about Desert Kid for you to read, like and share.
