My crochet books contain charts along with text. Scroll to the bottom of this page to see my free Creativebug video on reading crochet patterns, including charts.

Crochet Basics & Beyond includes a lot of good resources for better understanding symbol crochet.

My Knit & Crochet Design Resources page has a long list of stitch dictionaries, both knit and crochet. All of the Japanese books are fully charted.
