The Importance of Entertaiment


Entertaiment is the stuff that helps us to live life to the full. In a world where we are always working towards the next promotion or the next salary, it is important to take time out and have some fun. Entertainment is a crucial part of children’s development, often taking the form of play, which is important for their social and emotional growth (5,6). Stories like Scheherazade, from the Persian professional storytelling tradition, can inspire music (Rimsky-Korsakov and Ravel were both inspired by it), films and innovative video games (3,4,7).
