About the Storyteller – Celina Gutierrez
Celina Gutierrez, the owner and founder of Tap Peques, was inspired by her daughter to start the Spanish educational resource store about 7 years ago. She is originally from Mexico and as an immigrant mom, embraces multiculturalism among children and youth in the utmost high regard. As a Canadian mom, she found it very difficult to find Spanish books and activities for kids and Spanish classes for youth. Therefore, as a business woman, it was a natural fit to embark on this journey to fix this problem.
We speak your language. Peques is the short form of “pequeños," which means 'little ones' in English. As for the “Tap” it is a call to action to inspire kids to immerse in a cultural adventure. Today, Tap Peques has grown to be one of Canada’s leaders in providing the best in Spanish educational learning resources, with a friendly online shopping experience for both families and businesses. We offer a remarkable selection of online resources, Spanish and bilingual books, Spanish classes, book club and storytelling groups, parenting workshops and much more! Tap Peques philosophy aims to inspire children and youth to grow globally by being exposed to multicultural expressions. We strive to strengthen children and youth understanding of diversity through the “learning by doing” philosophy in the different products and programs that we offer.
