There are examples of bash scripts everywhere, but many of them are
tricky, not simple. Also, there is a humungous man page for bash, also
not much fun to read.

However, bash has a nice online help system. Just type help at a prompt
and see what you can find out. Then if you want info about a particular
bash command, such as while, for, test, exit, or whatever,

help commandname

Start simple and complexify only if you have to.
