Entertaiment for Children


Entertaiment relates to activities that amuse or delight people. The word is sometimes abbreviated to entmt on fliers and in industry news publications when space is tight.

One famous example of the power of stories to entertain is Scheherazade, a story from the Persian professional storytelling tradition that inspired Rimsky-Korsakov and Ravel to compose orchestral music, Pasolini to make a film adaptation, and even innovative video games. Playing is an important form of entertainment for children and helps them develop motor skills.
