Help with creating terminal menu

Hey, I have created a bash script, that will format, and write files to a large amount of usb drives at the same time. Can anyone help me or point me towards something that will explain how to create a menu in the terminal window, something like how nano has the little menu where there are different options, a place to input the text, etc. I guess it might be a little more complicated than nano, but I would need to be able to select how many drives to do, and what files, and possibly a progress bar of some sort? If anyone could help, that would be great.

PS: I never did what you planned to do.
