Anyone familiar with What Is/Are ... Government books?

I'm going through some stuff from Scholastic.  There is a Government Pack with 5 books which look like an introduction to how our government works.  They are written by Nancy Harris.  The target grades are 1-4.  DS is fascinated by this general topic as it is election year and a huge conversational piece in our household.  I wondered if anyone is familiar with this particular set or could recommend good basic literature about government or US History.  Amazon does not have any reviews, so I am a bit nervous.

There are 5 total books.  Here are the books on Amazon for visual reference:
