I do believe this needs to accept "The child is drinking some water"

But its not a translation exercise

Shouldn't "de" be translated as some here? Otherwise, why put "de"?

What's the real difference in meaning with the addition of "de" here? @sitesurf

OK, so we donĀ“t say boit de eau. Without a French book and coming from Portuguese, this is throwing me for now....
