I'm not one of the authors, but . . .
In object-oriented programming variables do not carry the same weight they do in procedural programming, hence in most OOP texts the use of variables and loops comes after recursion, etc.

The suggested syllabii on the web site shows various chapter sequencing to be used dependant upon whether or not the teacher wishes to take an objects-first approach or procedural. I believe the Forward to the Dunn, et. al book spells this out also.
