Hi Lindsey;
1) We moved because our house was too small.
BECAUSE is a subordinator.  This is a complex sentence.

2) A tree surgeon removed the branches that were dead.
THAT is a relative pronoun.  This is a complex sentence.

3) This is a book the children enjoyed.
My guess is that the this is a complex sentence which is missing a relative pronoun.
THIS IS A BOOK THAT THE CHILDREN ENJOYED.
THIS IS A BOOK WHICH THE CHILDREN ENJOYED.
