Callista Gingrich Inspires Kids to Embrace American History

Callista Gingrich is used to the political spotlight but she is also getting attention and acclaim as a children's book author.

Gingrich has just released her fourth book about American history, “From Sea to Shining Sea."

Gingrich says in this book, Ellis the Elephant discovers a growing nation on a great expedition with Lewis and Clark.

She appeared on "New Day" to speak about the book and how it is meant to celebrate the history of the United States.

“I write these books because I love America and I believe America is truly an exceptional nation,” she says.

“I think it's more important now than ever that our children understand what makes this country so special.”
