James Taylor’s ‘Sweet Baby James’ Becomes Pop-Up Storybook

James Taylor’s song “Sweet Baby James” has been made into a pop-up storybook. The ten-page Sweet Baby James: A Pop-Up Lullaby is published by Penguin, and illustrates the song with each spread of three-dimensional scenes dedicated to a single stanza. “I started writing it for my nephew on the occasion of his birth,” Taylor says of “Sweet Baby James” in a new video. “I drove down the coast and I was really keen to see Little James, who had been named after me and was the first child born to our generation in the family. It was a big deal.” “Somewhere in Virginia the idea came to me to write a cowboy lullaby,” he adds. “The song is something I’m proud of and something I think approaches being a work of art.” “Sweet Baby James” serves as the title track to Taylor’s 1970 album.
