Tasha joined the Eight Cousins family in 2007, and last year started a family of her own, becoming a mother to a now one-year-old daughter, Lola. The ever-growing stack of paperbacks on Tasha’s night stand has been replaced with Lola’s collection of well-chewed board books, including the favorites Peek-a-Who? and Ten Little Fingers and Ten Little Toes. When you’re buying books for the little ones in your life, stop in and ask Tasha what Lola is reading, and be sure to look for Tasha and Lola’s Book Corner in the newsletter.
At Eight Cousins Tasha is the Floor Captain; she also maintains office and paper supplies, ordering items such as the store’s signature red wrap and eye-catching red and white bags. She has a keen eye and incredibly precise handwriting. She gravitates towards reading science, history, and mysteries, but also reads coming-of-age stories, like The Perks of Being a Wallflower, and books with characters who grow from modest circumstances, such as A Tree Grows in Brooklyn.
