When displayed on floor or furniture surface you have a big green book which actually let's you access the instruction manual from your home inside the game, rather than needing to suspend playing to access it in the usual manner. Brilliant idea for the newbies. Will leave this here in case there is anyone else like me who doesn't cotton on to quickly 😁 Best place to hang out on a dull day? Nintendolife.
