Maria Dominguez is the beloved Children’s Librarian at East Cobb Library. She moved to Atlanta from Palm Beach County in Florida, where she worked for many years as a Librarian. Maria has dual Master’s degrees in Library Science and Counseling, and she also speaks fluent Spanish. She loves animals and volunteers at Good Mews.

East Cobb Library patrons are huge fans of story time. Here is what we did in Maria’s crowded Itsy Bitsy Babies Story Time last week! Be sure to check out the adorable babies in the photo gallery at the bottom of this page.

This is the Way the Baby Rides
Tune: “The Mulberry Bush”
This is the way the baby rides,
Baby rides, baby rides.
This is the way the baby rides,
Bouncy, bouncy, bouncy.

This is the way the baby swings,
Baby swings, baby swings.
This is the way the baby swings,
swing, swing, swing.

This is the way the baby jumps,
Baby jumps, baby jumps.
This is the way the baby jumps,
Jump, jump, jump.

Come back Jack, come back Jill

Two little blackbirds sitting in the snow
One named High, and one named Low

Come back Slow, Come back Quick.
