Southlake resident Lois Melbourne, GPHR, has published a new educational children’s book series entitled “My Future Story.” The series inspires kids to choose future careers they will love based on what they love to do today.

The first book in the series, “The STEM Club Goes Exploring,” teaches kids about exciting jobs related to science, technology, engineering and math, along with a corresponding website to help track their interests and connect to potential careers.

“Many people get caught in the common trap of simply stumbling into a job after school that dictates their career path, for better or – more likely – for worse,” Melbourne said in a release. “By inspiring kids to connect their interests with future professions early on, we can create a new generation of engaged employees who are satisfied in their careers and are better workers overall.”

“My Future Story” series features eight relatable young characters who learn about a variety of jobs as they explore their own career options. In the first installment, the gang learns about programming at a video game company, discovers ways to work with animals at a veterinary office, interviews a geologist at a mine, and hears all about jobs in the healthcare industry at a hospital, with many other career-related discoveries along the way.
