Entertaiment consists of performances of plays and movies, and activities such as reading and watching television, that give people pleasure. Besides being fun, entertainment is also important because it prepares children for adult life, and helps them develop skills that are needed for sports and music. It is also a source of family bonding. Throughout history, stories have been told to entertain and inspire. For example, the story of Scheherazade has inspired many different kinds of music, films and games.
