As a child, there was nothing more peaceful than lying in the grass and gazing up at a bright blue sky, watching whispy white clouds slowly drift by. I was free to daydream and soak up the serenity of a beautiful summer day. Occasionally an airplane would come roaring through, disrupting the stillness and perfectly puffy clouds, while leaving wonderment in its wake. Flight was freedom and beauty in one. And the thought of soaring in the clouds is still as magical to me today as it once was.

If you know a child who's fascinated with planes, turn their attention skyward and let their imagination soar with every page of the Learn to Draw Disney Planes book.

After a warm up, they'll be ready to navigate the rest of the pages in detail. Step by step, characters like Dusty Crophopper, Skipper Riley, El Chupacabra, and Rochelle are brought to life in detail from propeller to tail. The artists even highlight special features like each plane's distinct wing structure, decals, flags, and facial features to make sure their personalities shine through.

Give your child a chance to spread their artistic wings with Learn to Draw Disney Planes and see where it leads.
