From Booklist:

Ages 4-8. "Bea was always losing her belongings. It wasn't because she was careless. It was because she was such a busy person." After Bea loses her lunch box, jacket, raincoat, papa's umbrella, and the note that her mother writes to her teacher, Bea's exasperated mother wonders whether Bea would forget her ears if they weren't stuck to the sides of her head! But when Busy Bea finally slows down enough to find her school's lost-and-found, she recovers all of her lost belongings and amazes her mother. Only Bea's grandmother isn't surprised, since she has known all along that Bea is a great "finder." Poydar's soft and sunny watercolor illustrations charmingly capture the zest with which this African American child greets her world. Exuberant and with a flair for minor mishaps, Busy Bea is of the same tribe of little girls as Ramona the Pest. Welcome her story as a picture-book prelude or companion to the popular Cleary classic. Annie Ayres

From School Library Journal:

PreSchool-Grade 1-Little Bea makes life difficult for herself with her forgetfulness. She doesn't mean to be careless-she is just easily distracted and always busy. Lunchboxes, jackets, raincoats all get left behind as she hurries off to her next activity. Only her grandmother seems to be confident that Bea can learn to keep track of her things. When the child loses a new sweater that Grandma has knitted for her, she learns that the lost-and-found is the right place to look for it (and the rest of her missing belongings). One to four lines of text per page tell this slim story. Watercolor paintings in bright primary colors with lots of secondary color accents will assure readers that Bea's troubles are transient.
