This postcard arrived with an explanation as to what Buckeyes are and why Ohio is named after them. Bean thought the Buckeyes looked like Conkers and wondered if they were the same thing.
Bean really liked the chalk drawings on this card – picked by the sender for that reason. His favourite was the colourful sun at the bottom of the card.
A Postcard from … The United States of America This card came from a high shcool History teacher in Michigan. Bean was impressed beyond belief that it was from a) America and b) a teacher who put his first name!
