Some people think
that the circus is the best entertainment for children. It is a lively and interesting scene to watch where humans and animals entertain people in one place. On the other hand, some other people might think it may not be the best entertainment for children. Children can be better entertained without a circus, for example sitting in front of a TV or playing computer games.

In my opinion
, going to circus gives the children a chance to see the wild animals and birds right in front of them. Children also get a chance to see the animals perform amazing tricks in front of them. They can see clowns and jokers, master gymnastics and acrobats do wonderful things which can be the best entertainment for them.

At the same time
some people think the circus is not the best amusement for children. To watch the circus, one has to buy a ticket and get there at a particular time. Children may get scared of the animals, especially lions. Children also may be afraid of the high acrobatics performed at the circus.
