Google has replaced its logo on its US home page with an animated illustration to mark Teacher’s Day.

“Today’s homepage by artist Nate Swinehart honors the invaluable civil servants all across the United States who’ve dedicated their lives to molding a thoughtful, compassionate generation of citizens,” reads the Google Doodle blog.

The illustration — made up of six pencils fashioned to look like a teacher leading and reading to the five students trailing behind him — leads to a search for “Teacher’s Day” and includes a sharing icon to post the image in social feeds.
