This joyful and lyrical picture book from New York Times bestselling author Eva Chen and illustrator Sophie Diao is a moving ode to the immigrant experience, as well as a manifesto of self-love for Chinese American children.

What do you see when you look in the mirror, Mei? Do you see beauty?

We see eyes that point toward the sun, that give us the warmth and joy of a thousand rays when you smile. We see hair as inky black and smooth as a peaceful night sky. We see skin brushed with gold.


Praise for I Am Golden:

[A] richly metaphoric celebration of Chinese American identity … Luminous, gently textured digital art by Diao includes thoughtful, recognizably Chinese cues that add further dimension … A loving, affecting tribute to how children of immigrants can serve as bridges and torchbearers for their communities. —Publishers Weeklystarred review

Perfectly matched text and illustration … Every gorgeous spread in Chen and Diao’s co-creation maintains this exceptional and precise text and art symbiosis. … Chen and Diao weave the inherent value of the child throughout, aiming to encourage Asian American children to claim, ‘I am golden.’ —Shelf Awareness
