This cute story teaches the basics about making decisions by group vote while poking fun at those who are too self-absorbed, and highlighting empathy and leadership skills. It's a little odd that Nicolette knows what the lambs think even though they don't speak directly to her, as they do to one another and their mother. And how do all the animals understand the voting process? Can they read the "Yay" and "Nay" and "Take a stone" signs? It's not hard to just go with it, but it seems like there's a gap in the storytelling.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
