While not strictly fitting your request, Rogoff's "The Cultural Nature of Human Development" might be useful if you have not already found it.
But here's a tip how to turn amazon.com into a research-what the-research-community-is-reading tool for your purpose. look up rogoff's book (or cole's etc) on amazon.com and scroll down to 'Customers who bought this item also bought" and find the list of links of books, and follow these links to pages descibing those books. Then iterate this process on each new book until a stable ensemble of constantly appearing books appear. That could your list of core reading.
Also mine the SIPs (Statistically Improbable Phrases) in the same way.
Let us know how it works -- i have not tried it yet.
