People in Your Neighborhood is a 1979 Sesame Street poster book, with eight full-page pictures of the Sesame Street Muppets performing jobs. The book is an extension of the "People in Your Neighborhood" learning concept, first established in a song performed in the show's first season, and later used in books, records and toys. The photos used here were also used for frame-tray puzzles made by Western Publishing.
The contents are:
- Big Bird, posing as a mail carrier.
- Grover as a waiter.
- The Count, as a cashier.
- Betty Lou, as a carpenter (the book mislabels her as Prairie Dawn)
- Oscar the Grouch, as a newspaper dealer.
- Cookie Monster, as a baker.
- Bert, as a shoemaker.
- Ernie, as a barber.
