What is Entertaiment?


Article By:

Entertaiment is a form of play that allows children to learn through experience (through dolls, pets and group games); provides them with pleasure and diversion; and sometimes with adventure or adrenaline. It can also be used to teach them skills that they will use later in adulthood, such as a musical instrument or computer game. It is also an important part of the storytelling tradition, such as the famous story of Scheherazade, which has been adapted for music by composers like Rimsky-Korsakov and Ravel, for film by directors such as Pasolini and for innovative video games. The word is often abbreviated to entmt on fliers or in industry news publications where space is tight.
