    So, I've just won a book in a competition I entered ages ago, before Isaac was born - amazing as I never win anything so was delighted!! Anyway the book is called 'My Very Twinkly Fairy', ok so it's a bit girlie but I would give it to Isaac anyway. I told my OH & he thinks we should give it away as way too girlie for our little boy! Just thought I'd see what you all think?? Is it ok for a little boy to have a girlie book?!

    Yes quite frankly. A book is a book! Sebastian has free reign on every children's book in our house and in fact all the toys too including DD's Barbies and dolls and prams.

    Yes give it to him. Books and reading are treasures and nothing wrong with boys reading about fairies, bet the pictures are lovely for babies to look at. I feel the same about toys too, any toy that encourages role play and imagination are suitable for girls and boys.

    Thanks you, I've told my OH that there is total agreement that fairies are fine! He's agreed to keep it but plans to balance it out with plenty of books about trains & diggers! I'm looking forward to reading the fairy book, it makes noises and everything!
