From the Publisher:

"Nina's Book of Little Things" is a complete copy of the original work presented to the daughter of an artist friend of Haring's on her 7th birthday. It consists of Haring's cartoon drawings and writings. The book is prefaced by a general set of instructions penned by Haring in which he calls on the reader to use the book. He goes on: "Don't be afraid to draw in the book. Glue, paste, staple, sew, hammer, etc., etc., etc., tape, stick, etc., etc." Each of the double pages that follow carry their own playful, wity, and surprising instructions, accompanied by Haring's unmistakeable drawings. Haring invistes young readers to complete the book by filling in the "little things" that are importants: "little things I accomplished", "little things I heard today", "little things a bird told me", "little things a rabbit found at the top of a ladder." The book is a delight not only to children who might want to follow the author's instructions, but also to adult Haring fans and bibliophiles.
