Why do other books also claim that God showed Abraham the heavens and those in the premortal existence?

In Abraham 3, God shows Abraham the premortal world:

And God saw these souls that they were good, and he stood in the midst of them, and he said: These I will make my rulers; for he stood among those that were spirits, and he saw that they were good; and he said unto me: Abraham, thou art one of them; thou wast chosen before thou wast born.
