Amazon bestselling authors Nick Rokicki and Joe Kelley present their new book, First Photo of The Royal Baby. Everybody knows that The Queen doesn't smile often--- see how this affects Royal Baby's attitude for the first photo!

    TOLEDO, OH, July 09, 2013 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Everyone in the Palace is smiling about the new baby on the block! Everyone except the Royal Baby! Who is making Royal Baby mad? Mama? Daddy? Nana, the Queen?

First Photo of The Royal Baby is the new book from bestselling authors Nick Rokicki and Joe Kelley. The authors are using the worldwide phenomenon birth of the royal baby to promote a new positive message for children: a simple smile transcends all language... and you never know who is watching your every move!

"After traveling the world and reading to over 100,000 school children this year, we've gotten lots of ideas for new stories," said author Joe Kelley. "But educators were asking for something to teach children about being on their best behavior, in case other kids are looking up to them. This book takes a very popular and interesting historical establishment and applies the lesson in a fun way."

"A friend remarked to me that she couldn't believe that we would 'capitalize' on the birth of a baby to write a new book. Well, to me, this is the perfect opportunity to spread our message of kindness to others in a worldwide market," said author Nick Rokicki. "I think the Royal Family would love the book and the message: smile more!"

Rokicki and Kelley are the authors of Amazon bestseller Pete the Popcorn along with other titles. Pete the Popcorn has been recognized by media and teachers as a subtle anti-bullying book for children, which stresses the theme of encouragement over bullying.

Illustrated by Ronaldo Florendo, First Photo of The Royal Baby contains subtle nods to Royalwatchers worldwide. "People love Royalty. They love to picture themselves in Duchess Kate's shoes or meeting The Queen. This heartfelt story about Royal Baby's first portrait will relate to anyone with a child -- memories will come flooding back about your first experience trying to capture the perfect picture," said Rokicki.
