Callista Gingrich is the author of three children's books about American history, including the new book, "Yankee Doodle Dandy."
She appeared on "New Day" Tuesday to speak about the book and how it is meant to celebrate American history.
In an opinion piece on CNN.com, Gingrich writes:
It's vital that young Americans learn the history of our amazing nation.
Being an American requires knowing what it means to be an American. It's the fabric that binds us together and helps us understand who we are.

The new movie "Captain Phillips" opens this Friday. It's a drama about the real-life ordeal of Captain Richard Phillips, who was the commander of a cargo vessel that was overrun by pirates off the coast of Somalia in 2009.
Phillips was taken off his ship and held hostage for five days on a small boat. He's played by Tom Hanks. The movie portrays Phillips as a hero who saves his ship and his crew. But some members of that crew claim the true Captain Richard Phillips was anything but heroic. CNN's Drew Griffin has the story.
