"In the book titled Angel with a Wagging Tail, author Shirley Atha accomplishes in a children’s book what few writers have. Specifically, she created a central focus with multiple subordinate learning themes for both young and adult readers. This book deftly illuminates key life lessons, reachable by youth at the nursery, kindergarten, and elementary school levels. It also lifts the mature/adult reader’s spirit! Atha masterfully accompanies her prose with illustrations that breathe life into the story line in a way that is engaging, riveting, and memorable. While her storyline fundamentally emphasizes the importance and value of healthy people–animal relationships, it extends considerably beyond."

"Shirley and I met almost 20 years ago. I have always admired her kind and caring attitudes. Angel with a Wagging Tail condenses Shirley’s love and respect for God’s creatures into a clear-cut message for children Her determination and drive to develop her idea through to publication inspires me to return to my own writing. Shirley teaches by example and is someone that any village should be proud to claim as one who shapes the lives of their children." ~Karen Woodard B.A. Teacher of English, floral designer, newspaper columnist, tutor of children (K-5)
"It’s no surprise to me that my mother, Shirley Atha, has written such a passionate book about respecting and loving your pet, as well as all of God’s creatures. I remember when a stray cat came to our house when I was a child. She was pregnant and was having trouble trying to deliver her kittens. Mom, being Mom, took the cat in and helped her give birth to five babies. Sadly, they were born dead. Mom, again being Mom, wrapped each one in a soft cloth, put them in a box and gave the babies a proper burial. That act of kindness has stayed with me and has been instilled in my own sons. Mom is deeply blessed to have friends who have graciously contributed their time and talents toward her book. The illustrations by John Hilleary and the paintings by Christina Becker are a tribute to friendship, as well as splendid works of art. Mom, I give you thumbs up on your book!"
With love and respect, Your daughter, Patricia L. Atha Moore
