My nine year old GD told me that yesterday at school she drank seven bottles of water, I think this is too much for a child,thats over one an hour.Am I wrong to be concerned?

If she is really that thirsty then she could possibly be type 1 diabetic and should see a doctor as soon as possible. If it was a one off, then maybe she'd eaten something dalty.

What size bottles?

Might she be exaggerating? If you or her parents keep an eye on her and notice that she is in fact drinking a lot, it should be investigated.

Excessive thirst is one symptom of diabetes and should be investigated.
