I believe in learning Statistics and a programming language together as you need a computer language or at least Excel to try out the ideas. And I'm not sure if Tidyverse is suitable/enough.
There are many Statistics in R books but nothing for Statistics in Tidyverse. What's the difference and what's missing from Tidyverse for this propose.
I know Tidyverse is not everything but so far I haven't encountered a clear overview/explanation what Tidyverse can't deliver and how to connect whatever from the rest of R language to enhance the approach learning Statistics (primarily) in Tidyverse.
