Can 伝える be used for giving things?
I know that 伝える can be used when conveying something, like telling something to others. For example: "私は病気なので明日学校へ行きません、これ先生に伝えておいて"。 (I am not going to school tomorrow due to my sickness, tell this to the teacher.) [<=I made the Japanese sentence myself so please correct me if I my Japanese is wrong.]
So, I want to know if something like this is possible=> "この本を兄に伝えてください" (Please give this book to by brother). [*Note: I can realize that a better way of saying is would probably be "この本を兄に渡してください", but I'm still curious about 伝える。]
I hope my question was easy to understand!
ありがとうございます。OOPS! One typo: "Please give this book to MY brother"....
