About This Article
Entertaiment is the act or art of entertaining. It also refers to something that affords pleasure, diversion, or amusement: a ball, a puzzle, a play. Children’s entertainment is important because it teaches them social skills (through group games, dolls, pets) and prepares them for adult responsibilities (through activities such as reading and playing sports). Stories like Scheherazade, which is an example of professional storytelling in the Persian tradition, have entertained us for centuries, inspiring composers to turn it into orchestral music, directors to make films, and designers to create innovative video games.
